Woman's finals: Francesca Schiavone def Samantha Stosur 6-4 7-6
However, Schiavone became today's big hero, and even received a congratulatory call from Italian President Giorgio Napolitano. She's the first ever Italian winner of the French Open in history. This could be the beginning of several more titles in Francesca's career which started back in 1998. The Italian tennis star will turn 30 later this month.
Great match. I enjoyed it. It's nice to see a match where they don't just pound away from the baseline.
