Li Na wins French Open, makes singles history

China's Li Na became the first Asian tennis player to win a grand slam singles title as she defeated defending champion Francesca Schiavone on Saturday in the French Open finals.

The 29-year-old triumphed 6-4 7-6 (7-0) against the Italian, having been the first player from her country to reach the final of the clay-court tournament.

The victory will push her up to a career-high fourth in the world rankings, equaling the best by an Asian player set byJapan's Kimiko Date Krumm back in 1995.

    The Prosecution laid it all out, day by day. They are telling the truth about her. Baez and his team of morons, being paid by the taxpayers of FL, I might add, can only come up with an out and out lie to defend her. Birds of a feather flock together, lies. lies, and more lies.
    Baez is no better than his client, in my opinion. Hopefully the jurors will be able to dig themselves out of the crap that the Defense team is burying them in and see the truth, that this calculating, manipulative, evil mother murdered her child for her own selfish purposes, and believed her own damn lies and thought she could get away with it. RIP Caylee, the truth will prevail, your truth, your story

    I actually heard some news commentaries say they thought Biaz did a good job, they must not have listened to what he said. If this was an accident no one would have went to jail. Does her attorney really want us to believe the Police wanted this to be a murder so they covered up the drowning, George blamed this “accidental drowning” on Casey so she would have to go to jail, the meter reader must have been lurking around their house 24-7 knowing Caylee was going to die, he could follow George into the woods, dig up the body, save it just to put it back later inorder claim a reward, which everyone in Central Fl know it was if the child was found alive, even the meter reader. How did her little bones get scattered all over the wooded area unless it had been there quite awhile, they were scattered by animals, My God they had to sift through the debree for days to find as much of the remains as possible. Why didn’t Casey go to the police and tell them of here fathers cover up, then he would have went to jail and out of her life. The wooded area was under water for quite a while after the child was put there, you see we had a tropical depresson that soaked the gound and it stayed underwater for a long time. How did vines start to wrap around the remains, it had to be there for awhile for that to happen. Oh and where the hell did the meter reader hid the body? Goodness the police, the meter reader, george anthony, equa-search, seems everyone was involved in this consiracy to send Casey to prison. If the jury buys into this I will loose all faith in the justice

    While Casey Anthony lived a web of lies, it seems that the lies were mostly pragmatic ways to put off the inevitable…her mother finding her out. What if instead of planning to kill her child she was planning to kill her mother. It may seem strange at first, until you realize that both Mr. House and Mr. Lazzaro testified that Casey was planning to move back into “her home as soon as the parents moved out” , either into their own apartment, ” or left the house to her”. While we know well that the parents were financially strapped and had no intention of doing this, these statements shed light into her cognitions and fantasies concerning her parents? “neck breaking”? “chloroform”? Don’t those search terms indicate methods to subdue a full grown adult, and not a child after all? Perhaps her daughter’s death wasn’t planned after all, and perhaps we will never know, but, the planning of Casey’s mother’s death would have been no accident and would have brought insurance revenue into the home. Just food for thought.
