Saturday, I caught the second half of the French Open women's final that saw Maria Sharapova complete a career Grand Slam in eight years (2004 Wimbledon, 2006 U.S. Open, 2008 Australian Open, 2012 French Open).
This latest was a mismatch, scrappy but lighter-hitting Italian Sara Errani having beaten some of the best to earn her spot. Still, Sharapova's victory attests to her endurance, proving yet again she's more than looks.
