Serena Williams may be a tennis icon. But the 20-time grand slam champion commemorates big moments just like the rest of us: She takes a selfie.

Not long after winning the French Open women’s singles title on Saturday, Williams was spotted by former tennis star Marion Bartoli snapping a selfie with her newest trophy.

Williams overcame the flu and staved off Lucie Safarova — 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-2 — to win her third career trophy at Roland Garros.

“This is by far the most dramatic,’’ Williams told NBC’s Mary Carillo of her 2015 triumph. “I didn’t even train yesterday, I’ve had the flu … it’s just been a nightmare.’’

The flu nightmare should pass, but that trophy selfie will likely be on Williams’ phone for a while.
