08:26 AM ET 06.05 | The French Open Women's Final, to be played today, is one of the least expected Grand Slam finals matchups in recent memory. But the path both Samantha Stosur and Francesca Schiavone took to the final should make it no surprise that they are the final two standing. Stosur ripped off three wins over opponents who were or had been the No. 1 player in the world. That's impressive in any sport at any level. Schiavone is the 17th seed in the draw. The French Open has been won by a player outside the top 10 seeds just once -- way back in 1933.
