Spain's Rafael Nadal fires a serve to Switzerland's Roger Federer during Sunday's finale.

Jelena Jankovic overcame a pain in her neck and French teenager Alize Cornet on Sunday to win the Italian Open for the second straight year. The victory will help Jankovic, who beat Cornet 6-2, 6-2, establish herself as a serious contender for the French Open. "I like playing on clay courts," the fourth-seeded Serb said. "I had a great clay-court season last year, and then playing here and winning this tournament twice gives me a lot of confidence."
