2009 French Open – Women's Singles

Seventh seed Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated Dinara Safina in 74 minutes, 6–4, 6–2, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2009 French Open. Kuznetsova had been runner-up to Justine Henin in the 2006 final. It was the third all-Russian final in Grand Slam history, and the first since 2004. Kuznetsova won her first Grand Slam since the 2004 US Open, where she also won in an all-Russian final over Elena Dementieva, and second overall. Safina fell to 0–3 in Grand Slam finals with the loss. The match was also the conclusion of a series of matches between them during the preceding clay court season, with Kuznetsova beating Safina to win the title in Stuttgart, and Safina avenging the loss by beating Kuznetsova in Rome.
