The English Derby is one of the most prestigious and iconic events of the sporting and social calendars. The Ladies day is known for being a highly fashionable event, where ladies compete to win the coveted Style on the Downs competition. Elaborate headwear and colourful dresses are the norm. The Derby originated at a celebration following the first running of the Oaks Stakes in 1779. A new race was planned, and it was decided that it should be named after either the host of the party, the 12th Earl of Derby, or one of his guests, Sir Charles Bunbury. According to legend the decision was made by the toss of a coin, but it is probable that Bunbury, the Steward of the Jockey Club, deferred to his host. The inaugural running of the Derby was held on 4 May 1780. It was won by Diomed, a colt owned by Sir Charles Bunbury, who collected prize money of £1,065 15s. The first four runnings were contested over 1 mile, but this was amended to the current distance of 1½ miles in 1784. Lord Derby achieved his first success in the event in 1787, with a horse called Sir Peter Teazle.
The starting point of the race was moved twice during the 19th century. The first move, suggested by Lord George Bentinck, was in 1848, and the second was in 1872. It was discovered in 1991 that the exact length of the race was 1 mile, 4 furlongs and 10 yards. The Derby has inspired many similar events around the world. National variations include the Prix du Jockey Club, the Irish Derby, the Deutsches Derby, the Derby Italiano and in Australia, the AJC Australian Derby, Queensland Derby, South Australian Derby, the VRC Victoria Derby and WATC Derby. The New Zealand Derby contested at Ellerslie Racecourse, Auckland is the richest Derby in the Southern Hemisphere. Several races in the United States bear the "Derby" name, the most famous of which is the Kentucky Derby.
Marion Bartoli (born October 2, 1984) is a French professional tennis player and the current French No. 1. She has won five Women's Tennis Association singles titles and three doubles titles. She was also a runner-up at the 2007 Wimbledon Championships.
Bartoli has defeated two reigning World No.1 players in her career so far. She defeated Justine Henin in the semi-final of the 2007 Wimbledon Championships 1–6, 7–5, 6–1 and she defeated Jelena Janković in the fourth round of the 2009 Australian Open 6–1, 6–4. She has also recorded wins over former World No. 1 Venus Williams, Ana Ivanović, Lindsay Davenport, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, Dinara Safina, and Kim Clijsters as well as many top 5 and top 10 players.
Li Na (born February 26, 1982) is a Chinese professional tennis player. As of May 23, 2011, she is ranked World No. 7. Her career high ranking is World No. 6, achieved on March 21, 2011. She has won four WTA and nineteen ITF singles titles. She was runner-up in singles at the 2011 Australian Open and will play for the 2011 French Open title. Li's game is characterised by her powerful, deep groundstrokes, athleticism, and quick reflexes. She tends to play mostly from the baseline but is also somewhat comfortable at the net. Her backhand is the more powerful of her two groundstrokes, both of which she is known to scatter unpredictably to all corners of the playing surface. One of Li's weaknesses is her unusually high number of unforced errors. Li also lacks variety in her game, as she usually hits hard and flat and is rarely able to produce topspin or slices.
