Re: RG Final: Maria completes Career Grand Slam- def. Errani 6-3 6-2
Best possible final match after it was clear that it will be a Sharapova-Errani clash-up.
Sharapova played fantastic, No. 1-like tennis and Errani was able to fight and to show her abilities.
To have a better and closer final, Stosur should have won her semifinal.
Stosur would have been a better opponent although she would have lost the final against Maria anyway.
SHARAPOVA was the best player in those two weeks.
She played some amazing tennis, in the semifinal and the final.
She played 6 good matches and one bad match (against Zakopalova).
IMO it it still a bit a pity that Errani was in the final.
She was nice and great for those two weeks but a semifinal appearance would have shown more precise her abilities.
She's very solid and a good claycourter but not able to compete with the world class. Stosur and Ivanovic won a set against her with 6-1 and lost only because of mental issues and problems.
First Slam Title for Sharapova after her shoulder injury,
very nice career and good fighting spirit.
She was mentally very strong today and in her semifinal as well.
