Today is a pretty good day in the life of professional tennis player Maria Sharapova. She’s just been officially ranked as the best player in the World, and she is only the 6th player in women’s singles to complete the Career Grand Slam in the Open Era.
Maria Sharapova is the 2012 Roland Garros women's singles champion! She defeated Sara Errani 6-3 6-2. #RG12

Having defeated Sara Errani (6-2, 6-3) in the French Open finals, Sharapova achieved something most tennis players can only dream about. Maria has now been the victor of all four major tournaments, and she looks to be unstoppable these days, so who knows what’s next for the tennis star.
This is a truly fantastic turn of events by a driven woman who suffered shoulder injuries and was unable to perform 100% for the better part of the last few years.
Congratulations were clearly in order for the victor and new Grand Slam title holder:
Sharapova is now Lion Kinging whatever infants she can find. You do what you want, Maria. #rg12

By winning the French Open, Sharapova soothes a gutted heart. Bafana is not the type to depend on for a smile.
