Vergeer beats Homan again, wins French Open

Esther Vergeer has lost only one singles match since 2001. Since 2003, she has lost no singles matches. Today, she made it 360 straight matches by defeating her countrywoman, Korie Homan, 6-2, 7-5 in the wheelchair competition of the French Open. Vergeer and Homan were seeded 1 and 2. In the last couple of years, Homan has managed to take their matches to a third set a few times, and in Beijing, she pushed Homan to their first-ever third set tiebreak.

The French Open website, for some reason, does not include any of Vergeer's remarkable stats on her profile page.
