                                                Nadal and Ivanovic make history in Paris
                           Rafael Nadal confirmed he is king of clay at Roland Garros on Sunday by lifting the trophy for a
9 June 2008 Issue 23

                           fourth time, emulating Bjorn Borg’s record of winning four in a row at the French Grand Slam.

                           The previous day, 20-year-old Ana Ivanovic established her position at the top of the women’s
                           rankings by defeating Grand Slam final debutante Dinara Safina 64 63 in the women’s final to win
                           her first major. The 2007 runner-up had become the first Serbian woman to clinch the world No. 1
                           spot after winning her semifinal contest over Jelena Jankovic, on a day where both Serbs and
                           Svetlana Kuznetsova were all bidding to become world No. 1 for the first time in their careers.

                           For Nadal, it was another extraordinary victory which topped two weeks of flawless tennis, during Rafael Nadal (ESP)
                                                                                                                              (Photo: Paul Zimmer)
                           which he lost just 41 games in total. He swept past Roger Federer 61 63 60 in just one hour 48
                           minutes to take the title, marking Federer’s worst-ever loss at a Grand Slam and the fewest games conceded in a Roland
                           Garros final since 1977, and ending the Swiss’s dream of completing the career Grand Slam for another year.

                           “I think I played an almost perfect match. Roger played more mistakes than usual and I played more inside the court. I
                           improved a little bit since last year. I have more control of the points, I am more aggressive than usual,” said Nadal.

                           Nadal joins Bjorn Borg as the only two players to win four in a row at Roland Garros, and the Spaniard also became the
                           third player after Ilie Nastase and Borg to win the tournament without conceding a set.

                           Ivanovic, playing in her third Grand Slam final, relied on her experience to power through a gritty performance against an
                           equally unsettled Safina. “Winning a Grand Slam is something I dreamt of since I was a little kid, so achieving that goal
                           is very thrilling,” she said, after being presented with the Suzanne Lenglen Cup by four-time Roland Garros champion
                           Justine Henin.                                                                                                Cont. over/...

                           “Obviously I was nervous. I wanted to make one step more and win a title,” she added. The last two Slams were a great
                           learning experience for me so that kept some pressure off
                           me. There was a lot of emotions inside but till the last point

                                                         World No.1 Kunieda made a superb start to the final, speeding through the first set in
                            just 15 minutes, but Ammerlaan fought back in the second and Kunieda needed a tiebreak before wrapping up a 60
                            76(5) victory.

                            World No.5 Florence Gravellier (FRA) thrilled the home fans with a 57 64 63 first round win over world No 4 Sharon
                            Walraven (NED) in the women’s singles, but Gravellier’s bid to reach the final for the second successive year ended
                            when she was beaten 64 64 by world No.2 Korie Homan (NED) in the semifinals. Vergeer beat her compatriots Jiske
                            Griffioen and Aniek Van Koot for the loss of a total of just five games en route to the final. The world No.1 then produced
                            another dominant performance to beat Homan 62 62 and extend her incredible winning streak to 326 matches.

                            Top seeds Ammerlaan and Vink were forced to a deciding championship tiebreak before beating Houdet and Peifer 61
                            16 [10-6] in their opening men’s doubles match, but their luck ran out in the final when second seed Kuineda and
                            Scheffers clinched the title 62 75. Griffioen and Vergeer successfully defended their women’s doubles title, beating
                            Homan and Walraven 64 64 in an all-Dutch women’s doubles final.

                           Unseeded Yang came through some tough matches to make it to the final. He was

                           had put out top seed Bernard Tomic (AUS) in the previous round.

                           Halep was relieved to have picked up her first Junior Grand Slam title with a hard-fought victory over her good friend and
                           fellow ITF/Grand Slam Touring Team member Bogdan. “It's a big result for me. I played good all the matches,” said
                           Halep. “Today I had very big emotions because it was a big match for me. But I won. I don't know how, but I won.”

                            Ninth seed Halep came into the tournament having won the Grade A Italian Junior Open title and was imperious en
                           route to the final not losing more than five games in a match until the semifinal. In comparison, Bogdan had to fight hard
                           for her place in the final, with a 16 75 86 win over Bojana Jovanovski (SRB) in the quarterfinals and in the semifinals
                           against Lenka Jurikova (SVK).

                           teams, and currently aided by the Grand Slam Development Fund, won the boys doubles while Polona Hercog (SLO)
                           and Jessica Moore (AUS) took the girls doubles title.
