Maria Sharapova capped a great fortnight at Roland Garros on Saturday with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Sara Errani in the final. The Russian has been unmatched throughout this event, and has now achieved a once unexpected career Grand Slam. Sharapova had been uncomfortable on red clay in the past, but the improvements made by the second seed over the past few years have been vast.
Sharapova produced her usual attacking game against Errani, which put her in control of her own destiny. The Russian played with the confidence and reliability that has underlined her success over the course of the tournament, and the spirited underdog simply couldn’t match the soon-to-be world No. 1.
Errani may have been some distance from seriously challenging the newly crowned champ, but she plugged away, and attempted to work Sharapova around the court from the baseline. Where others crumbled, Sharapova held her nerve, and completed the career slam that began in 2004 when she won Wimbledon as a teenager.
