New milestone for ecstatic Schiavone
PARIS -- Francesca Schiavone will turn 30 later this month, but on Tuesday she achieved a career first here at Roland Garros.
With the applauding Court Philippe Chatrier patrons on their feet, she eased down across the service box and laid a loving, lingering kiss on the dark red clay. Her nice white dress was sullied and her face looked like a 2-year-old's that has been into the pudding, but she was ecstatic after defeating No. 3-seeded Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-3.
