Ana Ivanovic wins French Open

Ana Ivanovic confirmed her status as the new world number one with her first Grand Slam title at the French Open.

The 20-year-old second seed beat Russia's Dinara Safina 6-4 6-3 to become the first Serbian woman to win a Grand Slam singles title.

In a tense opening set, Ivanovic got the better of five breaks of serve.

And two breaks in the second were enough for Ivanovic to make up for her heavy defeat by Justine Henin in last year's final.
