BBC Sport - Tennis - Italy's Francesca Schiavone wins French Open title
I must say it was one of the most exciting womens' finals I have ever watched! The Italian gave it her all and came up with a truly spirited performance. Point after point it was very well played from an underdog ranked 17 who beat the number 7 ranked player. A reminder to reach in for the champion in us!
