French Open 2011 finals: Li Na to play Francesca Schiavone
The Women's French Open 2011 title would be either in Li Na's hand or Francesca Schiavone after the final that'll be played at the Philippe Chatrier court. Both the players seem to be in good form to clinch the title. It will be any one's game.
LI NA, the Chinese tennis player may have surprised many with her thumping victory over the Russian player Sharapova. She defeated the Russian 6-4, 7-5 in the semi-finals of the French open 2011. She would be facing 30-year-old, Francesca Schiavone from Italy who is getting better with age.
The fight between these two ladies would be a treat to the eye, where both players would love to outdo one another. The Italian always plays a wise game using all the angles in the court. On the other hand, Li Na is someone who has good strokes up her sleeves from the base line, and she is very talented, spirited and athletic. She is a war horse at her best.
Though, before the French Open started, no one would have predicted these two players to be battling it out at the Court Philippe Chatrier for the French open 2011 crown.
People in China have been keeping their fingers crossed as no one from China has ever won a singles grand slam title. Li Na stands a great chance in achieving the feat which she could have achieved during the finals of the Australian Open. She lost to Kim Klijsters so her dream still has not been accomplished. Her match with Sharapova had 40 million fans glued to their Television sets. The game is gaining in popularity in China too. She has played an important role in it. There has always been a good crowd support for Li Na on the courts too.
Francesca Schiavone has already tasted success as he won the French Open title last year. Will she be able to replicate her feat for a second year in a row?
