‘Red, Red Clay’ by Francesca Schiavone and Li Na


Red Red Wine 

Li Na finally won her first major at the ripe, old age of 29.

Francesca Schiavone’s hopes of defending her 2010 title were dashed by the daughter of a former badminton player. Li Na was told to switchover to tennis at eight by her coach. 

If there is a theme song for  the two unlikely protagonists in yet another fairy-tale ending at Roland Garros, it can only be ‘Red Red Clay’, a modified version of UB40’s ‘Red Red Wine’.

For your swinging,singing and listening pleasure:

(Chorus sung by Francesca Schiavone)

Francesca Schiavone in 2010

Red , red clay
Goes to my head
Makes me forget that I
Still need it so
Red, red clay
It`s up to you
All I can do I`ve done
memories won`t go
memories won`t go
I just thought that with time
Thoughts of you would leave my head
I was wrong, now I find
Just one thing makes me forget
Red, red clay
Stay close to me
Don`t let me leave
It`s tearin` apart
My blue, blue heart
I just thought that with time
Thoughts of you would leave my head
I was wrong now I find
Just one thing makes me forget
Red, red clay
Stay close to me
Don’t let me leave
It’s tearin’ apart
My blue, blue heart
