French Open 2009 - The final thoughts

Another Grand Slam is over. This time the final was between Dinara Safina and Svetlana Kuznetsova where Kuznetsova won fairly easy. Defending champion Ana Ivanovic, as expected, didn't find her best form, just like her compatriot Jelena Jankovic. Maria Sharapova's effort on the other hand was excellent when you consider for how long she has been injured, and it looks like in couple of months time we could see good old winning Maria back on courts.

Two tennis hotties that have surprised me the most are definitely Dominika Cibulkova and Sorana Cirstea. These young tennis guns have showed that they are not just pretty looking girls but excellent tennis players, and that we can expect much more from these two in years to come. I also expected much more from another two young tennis hotties Caroline Wozniacki and Sabine Lisicki but this hasn't really been their best tournament.

Dominika Cibulkova - One of the more pleasant surprises at French open 2009

In any case it was excellent tournament once again, full of surprises. What else to say than we're already looking forward to Wimbledon.
