Sharapova Wins French Open




Her feet were ever-more planted on the ground, the clay brushing parts of her shoes, her hawk eyes cut-through the court sharp ahead and her bent shoulders steered her into that glorious moment of victory she had been looking for under the cover of her cap. This was Maria Sharapova who defeated Sara Errani seizing the French Open Finals title to her name and another title to her trail.

The Russian was dead focused all throughout the game as the game ended with a 6-3 6-3 victory. Sharapova now has all four grand slam titles to her name. Her strategies were well placed out, her serves were daunting and the finish of her returns was impeccable. It had to be her day.

Though there were several players who were missing from the tournament like the Williams sisters, it did not mean that Sharapova had it easy. She overcame other fierce competitors like Li Na to move forward as a deserving.

”It’s a long road back; it’s a long process. It’s a lot of days of frustration and uncertainty, not knowing if you’ll ever get there, not knowing how much you want it, not knowing whether (there) would be a moment like that for you again”.

She also added that standing on the court, holding that beautiful glass cup brought a whirlpool of past memories for her. Sharapova had made it till here a couple years ago and that time she did not know whether she would be back at the same spot ever again. Winning a first of any tournament holds special and winning a Roland Garros was a moment mixed with ecstasy and excitement for the Russian.

But of course lets not forget the other player who gave a tough fight to the champion. Errani’s coach had little complaints after the match, saying that players like Sharapova were bound to get ahead and do well. Errani still has her doubles match to play in the coming Friday.

Errani said that all through the match the only thing that went to her mind was playing her game right. She knew who she was facing and it was more about accepting that fact than shaking her confidence lose from the start.

After a shoulder surgery in 2008, Sharapova knew that she had to work on her serving, something that came much easier to her before the replacement and that is exactly what she worked on. But all that pain seems to have gotten he best gain because there is just nothing better than holding a gleaming glass trophy.
