It has been four long years since Russian tennis star, Maria Sharapova, last stood at center court holding a Grand Slam championship trophy in her hands.
Today…that drought ended. “It’s a wonderful moment in my career,” the 25-year-old Sharapova told the crowd, speaking in French. The French Open was the last piece of the Grand Slam puzzle for Sharapova. “I’m really speechless. It’s been such a journey for me to get to this stage.”
This win, her 27th career title and caputring the last of the Grand Slams puts her in elite tennis company, with Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Serena Williams and Billie Jean King.
