The streak is broken

I meant it when I said "never count Schiavone out," and today in Dubai--despite what I hear were moments of typical choking sounds coming from her--Francesca Schiavone, the Italian warrior, ended the winning streak of world number 1 Justine Henin. For Schiavone to beat Henin is a big deal; for her to overcome her own tendency to lose at all costs is a bigger deal. We have seen a tougher Schiavone in the last couple of seasons, and here's hoping we continue to see her.

Schiavone def. Henin, 7-6, 7-6
