2010 French Open – Women's Singles

Francesca Schiavone won her maiden Grand Slam title, defeating maiden Grand Slam finalist Samantha Stosur, 6–4, 7–6(7–2), to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 2010 French Open. For the first time since the 1979 Australian Open, none of the semi-finalists had previously won a Grand Slam title.[1] Schiavone thus became the first Italian woman to win a Grand Slam tournament, and the first woman in the Open Era to win the French Open while seeded outside the top 10. The final was the first since the 2004 tournament where both players were appearing in their first Grand Slam singles final. Schiavone remains the last woman with a one-handed backhand to win a grand slam tournament on the woman's tour. In virtue of her victory, Schiavone also made the top 10 for the first time, debuting at No. 6.[2][3]

Svetlana Kuznetsova was the defending champion, but lost in the third round to Maria Kirilenko.

This was the last French Open appearance of four-time champion Justine Henin following her comeback. Prior to her defeat to Stosur in the fourth round, Henin had a streak of 24 match wins in the tournament (and had won 40 consecutive sets at Roland Garros before losing the second set of her third round match against Maria Sharapova).[4] It was also the Grand Slam tournament debut of future world No. 1 and two-time Grand Slam champion Simona Halep. She was defeated by Stosur in the first round.
