Ivanovic wins French Open crown
Saturday 07 June 2008
Serbia's Ana Ivanovic claimed her first grand slam title with a 6-4 6-3 win over Russia's Dinara Safina in the French Open final on Saturday.
The second seed became the first woman representing Serbia to win a major title.
Last year's finalist Ivanovic, who will become world number one on Monday, was too powerful for Marat Safin's younger sister, converting three of her four break points to take the opening set in 45 minutes.
She broke in the third game of the second set, held serve and sealed a straightforward win on Safina's serve when the Russian missed a forehand after one hour 38 minutes.
