Game Set and CHAMPIONSHIP
S.Williams
6-1 5-7 7-5


(8)Serena Williams def. (5)Dinara Safina 6-1 5-7 7-5
What a high-quality match from both players(No CTs at all)! The American had an excellent match, and even wanted to end the match in the scoreline as her last meeting against Dinara, but Dinara just faught back and levelled the match! Serena showed why she is the world No.1 by playing some really powerful shots, and eventually won it in style!
Congrats Serena for winning your third title in this season, and second on clay, you definitely can be a dangerous threat at Roland Garros with such a dominant form, hope you can just keep this form in the whole claycourt season, and show your best tennis at RG!
Disappointment for the Russian, who couldn't win this three-setter after so many success in playing this kind of matches before, but an amazing tournament for you, which you showed your strong mental toughness, hope you can also keep fighting in the rest of the claycourt season!


Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please congratulate our Season 2 Internazionali BNL d'Italia champion,
Miss Serena Williams from the United States!


And the runner-up,
Miss Dinara Safina from Russia!

What would Dinara's ranking have been if she won Maria?
