Maria Sharapova has won the Australian Open Tennis title by beating Ana Ivanovic in two sets [7-5 6-3]. And it was exactly what I had predicted a few days ago (“P.S: I’m tipping Sharapova to come up trumps in the Ladies’ Finals and FedEx to win the Men’s!”). Well, I know the latter part of that sentence isn’t going to come true but hey, Sharu won yaar! Thats good enough. And unlike yesterday, I did get to see the replay of the match and the entire presentation ceremony later. Sharapova was the fastest off the blocks and even broke Inanovic’s serve to get ahead but a couple of double faults brought the game level again. But Sharu converted another break point and won the first set. Second set was more easy for Sharu as she broke Ivanovic’s serve in the seventh and ninth games to win the set, match and championship.

This is Sharapova’s third Grand Slam title after the Wimbledon and US Open and with the French Open coming up, she has a chance at the Career Grand Slam!
And she’s still 20! Well done Sharu….
