Yeah, it just happened. 29-year-old Francesca Schiavone from Italy did the unthinkable and won the French Open. This makes her the first Italian Women to win a Grand slam and also the highest ranked Italian Woman of all time, as she surpasses Flavia Pennetta to reach number #6 in the World.

She said in the interview before the match that what she lacks in height she makes up for in heart and she truly showed that in this tournament. I and most others would have ranked Stosur as a huge favorite and Sportbooks all around the World gave around 1,2-1,4 on a Stosur win. Instead Schiavone managed to win 6-4 7-6. This goes to show how important “heart”, fighting spirit and desire to win is in all sports and Schiavone should have all the credit in the World for demonstrating the importance of it.

This will of course be the headline in the men’s final, where Robin Soderling plays his second final against 4-time champion Rafael Nadal. Can Soderling keep up his fierce attacking tennis and blast through Nadal’s brilliant defense? I think there is a good chance actually. The player’s have played seven times and the H2H score is 4-3 to Nadal, but with Soderling winning the latest two matches.

This final will surely be a thrilling contest. If you want some betting advice on it, please read this post.
