Francesca Schiavone (born 23 June 1980 in Milan) is an Italian tennis player who turned professional in 1998. She won the 2010 French Open singles title, becoming the first Italian woman to win a Grand Slam event in singles. Schiavone is currently ranked World No. 6. In the final, Schiavone faced Stosur in a rematch of their first-round meeting at the 2009 French Open which Stosur had won easily (6–4, 6–2). Because of this previous result, and Stosur’s victories over Justine Henin, world #1 Serena Williams and world #4 Jankovic en route to the final, Stosur was considered a heavy favorite to defeat Schiavone. But on 5 June 2010, Schiavone became the first Italian woman to win a Grand Slam singles title, beating Stosur 6–4 7–6. The victory made her only the third Italian player to win a Grand Slam event in singles. (Wikipedia)

This was a great match. Schiavone really impressed me; just her sheer determination and power. Stosur didn’t stand a chance. And the closing ceremony was so emotional.
