"I really happy, I love to play here and I'm just happy the way I celebrate my birthday", Ostapenko grinned. "I don't know what to expect from her", said Halep, bidding to become just the fifth player to win both the girls' and women's singles titles at Roland Garros.
Bacsinszky was knocked out of the tournament at the semi-final stage at Roland Garros in 2015 and appeared determined to avoid the same fate as she comfortably levelled at one set all. However, with the final now set, Halep can turn her attention to Ostapenko, claiming the No. 1 seed and her first Grand Slam.
Ostapenko clinched victory with her 50th victor, a forehand into the corner, and has hit more winners - 245 - than anyone else in the tournament despite the men playing best-of-five-set matches.
After recovering from a set and 5-1 down against Elina Svitolina in the quarter-final, Halep led from the front against Pliskova.
Amazingly it would be her first professional title of any kind - emulating the feat of Brazilian great Gustavo Kuerten who also announced himself to the world by coming from nowhere to win at Roland Garros in 1997. Once she started to pick up steam, it was clear that playing uphill had taken its toll on Pliskova, and Halep took her final two games with relative ease.

At times during a match of 16 service breaks the impetuosity of youth betrayed her as she seemed on the verge of youthful tantrums in the hot sunshine, especially when she lost four games in a row to lose the second set. She proved herself by beating the second seed on Thursday, too.
Pliskova has been critical of her own performances at this French Open, specifically referring to her backhand and inconsistency on her potentially big serve.
The world No 47 hit a staggering 50 winners in a 7-6 (7-4), 3-6, 6-3 win over two hours and 25 minutes against Timea Bacsinszky, the No 30 seed.
On the morning of the women's French Open semi-finals, seven-time champion Chris Evert said the moment had arrived for a player to step up and seize an opportunity that may not come around again for a while. "It was a sharp pain at the beginning, but then I got some painkillers, and I got the tape that I have had on was helping me quite a lot". "I'm just going to go there and enjoy the match and try to show my best. I think was a battle." said the surprise package.
Bacsinszky received treatment on her right knee and consulted with the tournament doctor.
