PARIS (AP) _ Justine Henin (zhoo-STEEN' EH'-nan) has claimed her
third consecutive French Open title and her fourth overall, beating
Ana Ivanovic (ee-VAH'-no-vich) 6-1, 6-2.
Henin took advantage of some shaky play by the 19-year-old Serb,
who was playing in her first Grand Slam final.
The Belgian trailed in each of the first four games, which took
24 minutes, but won 18 of the next 22 points.
Henin extended an Open era record winning streak of 35
consecutive sets at Roland Garros.
She's the first woman since Monica Seles in the early 1990s to
win three consecutive Roland Garros titles, and only the second
since 1937. And she's the fifth woman since 1925 to win the French
Open four times. Chris Evert leads with seven titles.
