Edgbaston: China’s Li Na proved too strong for former world number one Maria Sharapova at Edgbaston for the second year in succession on Sunday when she claimed the grasscourt title with a 7-5 6-1 victory.

The top seed was given a tough fight early on by Sharapova before racing to victory and her third career title.

Three-times grand slam champion Sharapova, trying to climb back into the world’s top 10 after her career was stalled by a serious shoulder injury, lost to Li in last year’s semi-finals.
Sharapova was trying to win the event for a third time.
