Hi everyone! @hannakin__ here bringing you the French Open women's singles final - it's defending champion Serena Williams vs Garbine Muguruza.

Playing her 27th Grand Slam final and going for her 4th title at Roland Garros, Serena Williams continues her long march towards history today. When she lifted the trophy this time last year most imagined she'd be back this year aiming to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 titles, but it's not panned out that way, will today see her finally equal Steffi Graf's 22 titles?

Her opponent Garbine Muguruza is also trying to make a bit of history today. A win today would not only be her maiden Grand Slam title, but would also make her the first Spanish woman to win a Grand Slam singles title in 18 years.

So....Head-to-Head goes Serena's way (when doesn't it?), with Williams holding a 3-1 record over Muguruza. Interestingly, Muguruza came out on top in their only previous meeting on clay, causing a big upset in the 2nd round of the 2014 French Open.

At Roland Garros this year both players have breezed through the draw - Serena has dropped just one set, although appeared to be struggling with an injury in the semi-final yesterday. Meanwhile since dropping the first set in her opening match Muguruza has won straight sets all the way through to the final.

I'm going for Serena in 3. Any predictions?

Serena to serve. ready? PLAY.

Serena goes 40-0 up very quickly, firing down her first ace of the match. Another big serve bounces away off Muguruza's racket and Serena starts off with a comfortable hold

Muguruza serving well early in the game, Serena can't get the return over the net and it's 30-15. Another return into the net for 40-15, but on the next point Serena hits a huge backhand return on Muguruza's second serve and it's 40-30.

Muguruza recovers to keep us on serve.
