Maria Sharapova wins French Open by beating Sara Errani
Maria Sharapova shoot her way to victory by shoving aside Sara Errani in the French Open final to become only the 10th woman to accomplish a career Grand Slam.
Sharapova, 25, collected a one-sided 6-3 6-2 win to add to the Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open titles from earlier in her career.
The 6 foot 2 Sharapova overwhelmed 5 foot 4 Errani, who was playing in her first Grand Slam singles final. Sharapova pushed herself to the top of the women’s rankings.
But by tightening things up on the fastbreak, Spoelstra is significantly reducing opponents’ margin for error. Now other NBA teams have to do more than just hit a lot of 3-pointers to beat the HEAT. They’ll have to figure out a way to stop an offense that can beat you at the rim, beyond the arc and out on the fastbreak.
