It would have been more interesting if some other top players made it to 2nd week

Well done to Maria but she still doesn't suit clay. You either do or you don't

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.

For fuck sake... Aren't you tired of his bullshit? "Timing" This timing thing is already 5 years old.. Ivanovic, Kuznetsova, Schiavone, Li.. List of all time claycourt greats, right?

Sharapova's fake celebration at the winning point was ...epic I think. It looked so faked, her acting skills are not the best.

Congrats Maria though.
TBH no one care really whom she beat to win the title probably she didn't beat the strongest field out there but on clay which players are relevant bar Maria ?

This is the best clay-court match I've seen from female player for very very long granted Errani wasn't that strong of an opposition but still, the placement, the spin, patience, control etc. this is a masterclass demonstration.

Re: RG Final: Maria completes Career Grand Slam- def. Errani 6-3 6-2

Phenomenol French Open for Maria Sharapova! Maria truly deserves the 2012 French Open title and the very rare career grand slam. All of Maria's shoulder problems have cost her a few grand slam singles titles in my opinion so it's only right she has now won the career gramd slam at age 25 and secured her place in women's tennis history.

No tennis player has ever made a successful comeback from shoulder surgery so to me as a fan of Maria's for more than 10 years to see her come back to number 1, win a grand slam singles title post shoulder surgery and the career grand slam makes this without question a remarkable athletic accomplishment.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
