I wanted Stosur to win- simply because I thought she'd earned it by beating Henin and Williams- but on the day all the fire and intelligence were on the other side of the net. Schiavone made Stosur look clumsy. It was a remarkable win.|
Remarkable too because of Schiavone's age, her nationality- and because no woman seeded outside the top ten has won at Roland Garros since I don't know when. She was electrifying on court and her enjoyment of her victory was infectious.
I'm sorry for Sam, but she'll have other chances.
Viva L'Italia e viva Francesca!
