Victory, Italian-style!

Oh my!

Francesca Schiavone won the French Open!

Francesca Schiavone

The minute they started playing, when Francesca would get the point, I’d cheer. When Sam got a point (or rather 15 points), I’d slump. So, even though I said I was totally split on whom I liked better, it was immediately apparent that it was Francesca. The match was fabulous. Not so much for Sam, but Francesca’s exuberance trumped everything. She is the first Italian woman to win a grand slam! Ever!

Now to work for me. See if I can come down from the high of this tennis today. Oh yeah, we STILL have no running water. That will bring me down quickly.
