103 58
This year marks the 2010 French Open and nearly all the matches have been played out.
Samantha Stosur from Australia is up against Francesca Schiavone from Italy.
Both players have never won the French Open singles tournament.
Samantha Stosur was born in Australia.
She was born in Brisbane, Queensland on the 30th of March 1984.
In May 2010 she was ranked number 7 in the world in women's singles.
She was at one stage ranked number 1 in the WTA Tour in doubles along with Lisa Raymond.
Stosur as a singles player has beat a lot of great players.
This time round in the French Open of 2010, Sam has beaten Serena Williams, Jelena Jankovic and Justine Henin to progress through to the final.
Beating these 3 top players is a huge feat.
At the current age of 26, Samantha is playing the best tennis of her entire career.
She has never played in a grand slam singles final and this time round in the amazing tennis grand slam in Paris is her first time.
Sam's opponent Francesca Schiavone from Italy has also not been in a grand slam final.
She is aged 29 and is peaking very late in her career.
Her highest ever ranking is number 11 on the 30th of January 2006.
She is currently ranked number 17.
If Francesca wins the open, she will be one of the very few tennis players that have won a grand slam while being ranked outside the top 10.
Francesca played Samantha last year in 2009 in the first round of the French Open.
Sam won that round and finished up in the semi finals where she lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Sam's match record with Francesca is four to zero.
She has beaten her every time on four occasions and twice of them were on clay.
At the moment the odds are in Sam's favour to win this grand slam in Paris.
If she completes this epic task, she will make all Australians proud.
There hasn't been an Australian grand slam winner for three decades now.
The last woman to do so was Evonne Goolagong Cawley.
Evonne Goolagong Cawley won the Wimbledon title twice.
Once was in 1971 and once in 1980.
No matter who wins the tournament, both women will do their countries proud.
Tennis in Australia and Italy will have new tennis greats to look up to.
Since I am Australian, I will be going for Sam to win.
Nevertheless it will be a great and exciting game of tennis.
A lot of Australians will be watching the game live.
Fox Sports will be showing it live in 3D in 2010.
It will also appear in standard and high definitions.
In conclusion, the winner of the French Open will be decided on the 5th of June 2010.
I am going for Samantha Stosur to win and I know all Australians will be supporting her too.
