Ivanovic Claims Top Ranking in Style, Wins French Open

Your new #1, not just in tennis.

Already the new #1 player in the world by virtue of her presence in the final and Sharapova's earlier loss, Ana Ivanovic won the French Open this morning over Dinara Safina, 6-4 6-3. This is Ivanovic's first victory in a major, after two previous losses in finals. In a happy coincidence, the #1 hottest tennis player is also ranked #1 as a tennis player. The defending champion Justine Henin retired a few weeks earlier, making the path to the title easier for all other competitors. Ivanovic was the #2 seed and became the favorite after Safina upset #1 Maria Sharapova in the Round of 16. This continues a strong year for Serbian tennis, as Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open earlier this year, and Djokovic and Jelena Jankovic both made the semis at Roland Garros.

I applaud Ana for having pics like this on her website.

In the men's final tomorrow, it will once again be Nadal vs. Federer in the final. There are rumors that Bjorn Borg will declare Federer to be the greatest tennis player EVER if he defeats Nadal and completes his career Grand Slam. Nadal has won the last two in fascinating matches of the highest quality (NBC, 9 ET Sunday).

Ivanovic is definitely hot, but I still prefer Sharapova.

I'd like to choose between the two Rock of Love style.

You mean sleep with them both while trying to cover up the fact that you have hair plugs?
