Justine Henin Wins Third Straight French Open [David Stefanini]

Justine Henin won her third consecutive French Open in straight sets against Ana Ivanovic's. For more on this here is

"Justine Henin claimed her third consecutive French Open title and her fourth overall Saturday, taking advantage of 19-year-old Ana Ivanovic's shaky play to win 6-1, 6-2.

Henin closed out the victory with a forehand volley winner, then flipped her racket, buried her head in her hands, leaned on the net and exhaled. She became the first woman since Monica Seles in 1990-92 to win three consecutive Roland Garros titles, and only the second since 1937."

Henin looked great and seemed to be unstoppable. She won in straight sets for the second straight year. I didn't watch the match, but from what I saw on Sportscenter this wasn't even close. Thankfully I didn't turn on the channel and watch the match.

The mens final, which places the two top players in the world against each other, should be far superior. That is a tennis match worth watching.
