Li Na wins French Open, 1st major for Chinese
PARIS (AP) — China's long wait for a Grand Slam champion ended Saturday when Li Na beat Francesca Schiavone 6-4, 7-6 (0) in the French Open final.
The Australian Open runner-up celebrated by falling flat on her back in the red clay after Schiavone hit a backhand long on match point.
The title was only Li's fifth in her career, and first on clay.
On Sunday, five-time champion Rafael Nadal will face Roger Federer in the men's final.
