Ivanovic Wins French Open 2008
Last night, it was my first time to watch French Open Tennis Tournament and luckily, Anna Ivanovic, a twenty-year-old professional tennis player from Serbia was hailed as the overall champion in women's singles, beating Dinara Safina of Russia 6-4, 6-3.
Winning the French open for the first time, Ivanovic or rather be called as Anci her nickname, she was also proclaimed as the first Serbian woman to win a Grand Slam. Truth is, Safina-Ivanovic final match was really rough. There were lots of awesome edges and unforgettable tennis moves there. I don't really know Safina but what can I only say about her is, she was very meticulous in her hot-tempered moves and the way she hits the ball was surprisingly powerful. I hope I can see more of her in the next tournaments.
On the other hand, there's this super cool version of Safina- non other than Anna Ivanovic. I saw her played once with Maria Sharapova and from that moment on, I felt this Hey-You-Nailed-Baby! factor in her. Sharapova was nice but Ivanovic was different. She's hip and much cooler.
While watching the French Open finals last night, Ivanovic was a cool bomb, displaying a sanguine disposition throughout the game. Despite of the nerve-cracking nerves flooding in her, she still has this I-Am-Enjoying-This-Game-No-Matter-What smile on her face.
"I still can't believe what happened!," said a joyful Ana. "The crowd was amazing, they've been a great support. I've got no words to describe that. Last year's final was a great learning experience for me and I could make it this time (anaivanovic.com)"
This is the reason why Ivanovic is my tennis chick from now on. Just nail it, Ana!
