Women’s French Open Final Set
While the men are deciding who plays on Sunday — Rafael Nadal already advanced, beating Novak Djokovic, 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 while the Federer/Monfils match is currently in-progress — the Women’s Final is all ready to go. The match will feature Ana Ivanovic taking on the upstart Dinara Safina tomorrow afternoon on the Chatrier court.
To advance, Ivanovic outlasted Jelena Jankovic, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4. In the other semi-finals match, Safina beat Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-3, 6-2. Looking at the scores, you have to believe because Safina had the easier match and therefore, expended less energy than her opponent, she’ll have much more than a fighting chance on Saturday. Of course, most of the Eye Candy appreciators will be watching for Ivanovic’s striking appearance but unfortunately for her, these things aren’t decided by how good you look.
And it’s hard to find anyone on the women’s side of the French Open who has been playing better tennis than Safina. In three straight matches, she’s beaten the Women’s number 1, 7 and 3rd ranked players in the world. Will she be able to beat the Women’s number 2 in Ivanovic? We’ll find out tomorrow.
