Replay: Francesca Schiavone’s Paris Dream

Patreon subscriber and friend of the show Luke Peristy asks Simon and Devang to relive an improbable run in Paris. Francesca Schiavone became the first Italian woman to win a Grand Slam tournament, and the first woman in the Open Era to win the French Open while seeded outside the top 10. Schiavone won this tournament using a shot we no longer see much of on the women’s tour. Why?
