30 - French Open Winners

Post no. 30 here:
French Open Winners!

Men's Singles:
The match-up we wanted: Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer
Rafael equaled the world record of French Open titles with 6.
It was a match that exceeded expectations with Nadal winning 7-5, 7-6, 5-7, 6-1. It was close throughout the match except for the last set where Nadal out-ran Federer to win his 6th title.

Finally!

Women's Singles:
China's Li Na vs Last year's winners Francesca Schiavone!
Li Na became the first ever Asian Woman to win a Grand Slam.

Even though the match only lasted two sets, it was an even match and the 6-4, 7-6 scoreline proves that. Li Na led 3-1 in the opening set before Schiavone fought back to equalize at 4-4, before Na finished the set off. The 2nd set started with Na leading but it was an equal battle and the tie-breaker was forced. Na won the tie-breaker convincingly with a 7-0 win.

Joke of the Day:
Q. What does a fish say when it runs into a wall?
A. DAMN!

  4. Yeah, I haven't watched a Tennis match in ages, but I really enjoyed watching today's match because I picked Nadal in 3 or 4 sets on ESPN's streak for the cash.
