Serena Williams v Maria Sharapova Live
Top seeded Serena Williams will take on second seeded Maria Sharapova in the final of the womens singles French Open 2013.
It’s been an easy journey for Williams to get to the final and such has been her form that she hasn’t lost her last 30 matches. So to expect her to lose a match here in the final against an opponent who has not beaten her since 2004 will be expecting a little too much.
In her semi-final she defeated Sara Errani 6-0, 6-1 to make it to the final with utmost ease.
There were certain chinks in the Williams’ armour when she took on Svetlana Kuznetsova in her quarter-final but she overcame them quickly enough to defeat her opponent in a tough three-setter. That apart she hasn’t spent too much time on court.
Against her is Maria Sharapova who needed three sets to overcome Victoria Azarenka after she had needed three sets against Jelena Jankovic as well. In fact Jankovic had a surprise for her when she crushed her 6-0 in the first set.
Williams has won the French Open once before and that was way back in 2002. This is a golden chance for her to make it two titles which is exactly what Sharapova will hope to do as well. Not that it will be easy for the Russian.
