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.

    I heard she threw him under the bus, and THAT'S why the bus flipped, not 'cuz he was all sleepy and stuff. Also he is going to get CAS and buy thousands of lotto scratchers for reward in the conviction because otherwise hed get away scott free! Oooh that evil CAS poster is gonna get someone wrongly convicted entirely because of his evil secret agenda on this highly evidenchamaditional blog. By his righteous postings, yin and yang will be in balance and the world will no longer end! Thank you, oh thank you Casey poster!
