One Out of Two Ain't Bad

My call of Nadal is looking great roughly two hours and two sets into the French Open men's final.  He and Soderling are both playing really well but Nadal is once again Nadal!
As for the women, I called it wrong.  Francesca Schiavone played extremely attractive and risky tennis on the French clay, especially in the second-set tiebreaker, featuring her charging the net, and handily dispatched Sam Stosur.  A journeyman WTA veteran now has a Grand Slam title; I have often enjoyed her flamboyance at the tournament in Toronto in early rounds, and it is great to see her skills all come together over a whole major tournament.  Sam Stosur - I expect to see you at future Grand Slam finals!
