1997 French Open

Martina Hingis v Anna Kournikova

6-1, 6-3



It was a match between young tennis stars, the surprising Swiss star who had taken the tennis world by storm in 1996 versus the young Russian who could not yet play full time on the WTA tour due to age restrictions.  Anna took on the reigning number one and tried to forget about their previous meeting in the juniors where she lost 6-0, 6-0.  The Swiss player again showed her experience and court sense as she dismissed the 15 year old Kournikova in straight sets.  Anna showed signs of nerves in the first set but showed signs of promise as she won her service games at love in the second set.*
