Top 10 statistics from Henin's French Open title


Justine Henin showed once again on Saturday why she is the No. 1 player on the WTA Tour.

The Belgian needed a little more than an hour to beat 19-year-old Ana Ivanovic in straight sets, the sixth straight year at Roland Garros that the champion won the final without losing a set.

In order, here are the top 10 (OK, 11) notable statistics resulting from Henin's win on Saturday:

0 -- Sets dropped by Justine Henin in her four French Open final appearances.

1 -- Only Belgian in the women's French Open draw this year.

2 -- Players in the Open era who have won three straight French Open titles. Henin joins Monica Seles (1990-92) as the only other women's player since 1968 to win the French three consecutive years.

3 -- Henin is the third different No. 1 seed in the last 20 years to win the French Open. Steffi Graf won the French as the top seed in 1988, 1993 and '96; Monica Seles was No. 1 when she won in 1991-92.

4 -- Next year, Henin will try to become the first player to win the French Open four years in a row since Suzanne Lenglen accomplished the feat from 1920-23.

5 -- Number of women since 1925 who have won four or more French Open titles: Chris Evert (7), Steffi Graf (6), Margaret Court (5), Justine Henin (4) and Helen Willis Moody (4).

6 -- Career Grand Slam titles for Henin. Only Serena Williams (8) as more among active players. Wimbledon is the only Slam Henin has yet to win.

7 -- Combined games lost in the semifinals and final by Henin. She beat Jelena Jankovic 6-2, 6-2 in the semis and Ivanovic 6-1, 6-2 in the final.

8 -- Number of victories Henin is shy of tying Chris Evert's record for most consecutive match wins at the French Open. Evert won 29 in a row at Roland Garros from 1974-75, '79-81. Henin's current streak is at 21.

9 -- Hours spent on the court in her seven matches at this year's French Open (9 hours, 14 minutes).

10 -- Number of Grand Slam final appearances for Henin (6-4).
