Pinning China on the grand slam map, Li Na became the first player from an Asian nation to win a grand-slam title after defeating last year's champion Francesca Schiavone of Italy 6-4 7-6 in the French Open final on Saturday.

With a confident display of power and accuracy, sixth seeded Li dominated a one-sided final as Schiavone was thrown off balance.

On a sunkissed Court Philippe Chatrier, Li's flat baseline strokes and accurate serve were enough for Schiavone to bow down.
