Ana Ivanovic grand slams French open

Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic won the French Open on Saturday, her first Grand Slam title, by ending Dinara Safina’s heroic run to the final and crowning her elevation to the world number one spot in style.

Ivanovic won 6-4, 6-3 as Russian 13th seed Safina saw her hopes of joining big brother Marat as a Grand Slam champion dashed.

For the second seeded pin-up, it was third time lucky after she had lost both her previous major finals – to Justine Henin here 12 months ago and Maria Sharapova at the Australian Open in January.
