Sharapova bulldozes Sara Errani to win French Open titleSuyash Srivastava

Paris: World No.1 Maria Sharapova won her maiden French Open title as she defeated Italian Sara Errani in straight sets 6-3, 6-2 in the women's singles final of French Open 2012.

The Russian dominated from the very first game as she came up with a positive frame of mind to play aggressive tennis.

After being casual in the initial stage of the first set, Errani played some competitive tennis and made sure that Sharapova had to battle for the trophy.

“The match you gave me today was extremely difficult,” is what the Russian said to Errani after the match. She also said about being hopeful to play more matches against the Italian in the future.

Sharapova was moved to tears after the victory and she received the trophy from former superstar Monica Seles.

“I am speechless. It’s such a journey to get onto this stage,” said the 25-year-old who underwent a shoulder surgery four years ago and was uncertain about her future then.

Maria thanked the crowd and her family who according to her were responsible for her historic moment.

“My mother and my father, they are my rock, they keep me going in my tough days,” she said.

Within the first 14 minutes, Sharapova won four games in a row after which Errani raised the level of her game and gave some tough fight to the Russian.

Towards the end, Sharapova’s power play was too hot to handle for the Italian as the 25-year-old cruised to victory.

By winning the title, Sharapova also completed her career Slam.
