French Open Tennis 2011, While women’s football is becoming more and more power based on the past few years, simply overwhelming the ball in the network will not be enough to win the French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, said Friday. Venus and Serena Williams, along with Maria Sharapova are among the players who have taken power, hitting a new level in the last decade – but its lack of success on clay shows that players can not rely on flexing their muscles Suzanne Lenglen Cup win
The trio has won 23 races between them since 1999, but only one of them – the success of Serena at Roland Garros in 2002 – there has been in the red things.
Italian Schiavone, fifth seed, who will face China sixth seed Li Na in the final on Saturday, is on a streak of 13-0 at Roland Garros and credits her success to a combination of cutting and turning upside down the right, along with its ability to quickly change tactics.
“You have to be well physically, mentally, has a good tactic. You can not just be able to play because you always have to defend and counterattack,” Schiavone told a news conference.
“So when you play a point on clay, can defend, then attack, then go to the network and then having to defend again.
“You have to use it,” he added, pointing to her head. “It is clear that on clay you can not use only the power.”
The 30-year-old, Milan is bidding to become the sixth woman to retain her title at Roland Garros since tennis turned professional in 1968.
Margaret Smith Court, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Monica Seles and Justine Henin have achieved the feat now.
If Schiavone joins that prestigious club on Saturday, is expected to inspire many young Italians to pick up the sport.
“Last year when I won the French Open, the percentages of people who signed in the tennis club, children were much higher than before,” he said. “So that’s good.”
