French Open 2010 - Final thoughts

Who would have guessed it? French open finalists Schiavone and Stosur. Talking about the huge surprise. Once again it was the same old story with Elena Dementieva and Jelena Jankovic, always a bridesmaid never a bride, so close and yet so far from the Grand Slam title. While Stosur showed real dominance against Jankovic, you have to feel sorry for Dementieva who was really unlucky with her injury.

Elena Dementieva unlucky with injury.

Ana Ivanovic once again showed her lack of form, and she really looks anything but capable to pose a serious comeback to the top. Maria Sharapova, while evidently in better form than Ivanovic, still struggles to find that bit extra needed to overcome top players and this was clearly shown in her match against Henin.

Caroline Wozniacki showed some good form but it still looks like she needs to reach the necessary age of maturity to go all the way. Maria Kirilenko and Daniela Hantuchova showed some good play but not enough to challenge the very best in the game.

I'm already looking forward to Wimbledon.
