2007: Hat-trick for Nadal and Henin

Third French Open, third title for Rafael Nadal, which saw him equal the achievements of Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander and Gustavo Kuerten (the latter on hand to present the Coupe des Mousquetaires after the final). The Majorcan's third Roland Garros title was his easiest to date and saw him make it through to the final without dropping so much as a set. He even saw off the challenge of Novak Djokovic, sweeping aside the Serbian rising star 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 in the semi-finals. Once again, it was world No.1 Roger Federer who stood between Nadal and the title, with the Swiss again looking to win all four Slams in a row. The final was a tight affair but Federer was left to rue his lack of success on break points, converting just one of the 17 which came his way. And as in 2006, he fell in four sets.

Justine Henin also won her third consecutive French Open title and her fourth in total, and for the second year in a row, she did so without losing a single set and took her amazing run to 34 consecutive sets won! The final was rather one-sided, with Ana Ivanovic swept aside 6-1, 6-2. The 19-year-old Serb had an impressive campaign nevertheless, defeating the second and third seeds Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova to make it through to her first ever Grand Slam final.
