Great croatian sports moments - Iva Majoli wins Roland Garros in 1997
It was the first Grand Slam championship for Majoli, who became the lowest-seeded woman ever to win the French Open. Majoli had such ferocious command of both her forehand and backhand that her opponent, Martina Hingis, who had won 37 straight matches, was made to look ordinary, while Majoli was majestic.The tall Croat never faced a break point on her serve and finished off the top-ranked player in the world in 1 hour, 21 minutes with a 6-4, 6-2 victory in the French Open women's final.
