That rumbling sound you hear is the avalanche of sportscasters around the world quipping in unison,”Ana Ivanovic has finally shed the comparisons to Anna Kournikova!” That’s so clever! Because they’re both pretty communists!
Okay, they’re not really communists. Anyway, Ivanovic trounced fellow hottie Dinara Safina to win the French Open earlier today. Viva Serbia! Or something.
Second-seeded Ivanovic defeated No. 13 Safina 6-4, 6-3 at Roland Garros in Paris. The 20-year-old was playing in her second consecutive final at the only clay-court Grand Slam after being dispatched in 65 minutes last year by then top-ranked Justin Henin.
This year was a reversal. She beat Safina, sister of two- time major champion Marat Safin, in 98 minutes and will be ranked No. 1 in the world on Monday after Henin’s sudden retirement last month. It was Safina’s first Grand Slam Final.
“This was amazing,” Ivanovic said. “I think we both played a very nervous match. I’m just so happy to keep my composure at the end.”
The top of the tennis world just got a lot sexier.
