After winning Stuttgart only a few weeks ago, Maria Sharapova has successfully defended her Rome title as she defeated No.8 seed and French Open holder Li Na of China 4-6 6-4 7-6 in a match time of 2 hours and 52 minutes. It was a match of many twists and turns and rain delays as Maria took her 26th career singles title.
On her wrist as she was holding the trophy, her sparkling TAG Heuer Forluma 1 Lady Steel & Ceramic Pavée, for the second time of the year already!
A grass expert, Maria Sharapova is dominating the tour on clay this year. Her very strong serve and her amazing energy make and will make a difference as she is heading to Paris for the French Open soon after a few well deserved days off.
