It's all about Ana.
The tennis world has a new queen as Ana Ivanovic defeated Russian Dinara Safina 6-4, 6-3 in a highly competitive match for the 2008 Roland Garros crown, becoming the first Serbian woman to win a Grand Slam and the first Serbian ever to be ranked world no. 1. To have those two moments happen simultaneously is astounding. Her time has arrived.
In her post-match presser, Ana said about the great win:
I feel so happy. I have no words to describe that. But Grand Slam, winning Grand Slam is something I dreamt since I was a little kid, so achieving that goal, it's very thrilling.
You know, you work so hard and you're, off the court, on the court, and you put so much effort into it. I loved the game and I enjoy playing, so this is the best reward I can get.
It's something ‑‑ it's my incentive, you know, to keep working hard, and, you know, win more of these trophies.
