And to the person who inquired about the final outcome, Petra Kvitova of Czechoslovakia (ranked eighth) defeated Maria Sharipova of Russia for the women’s singles title and Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nadal for the men’s. Caroline Wozniacki had been ranked number one in the world for the women. This was a milestone since a Williams sister was not in the finals for two years out of the last 12.
