French Open Results: Maria Sharapova Defeats Sara Errani To Win Women's Singles

Saturday's biggest result from the 2012 French Open was Maria Sharapova defeating Sara Errani in the Women's Singles final. Sharapova's relentless pace, size advantage, and power overwhelmed Errani, and Sharapova won in straight sets, 6-3 and 6-2. With the victory she became just the 10th woman in the history of tennis to win a career Grand Slam. Errani did put up a fight, though, and the no. 21 seed is likely to see her ranking in women's tennis rise significantly.

Also taking place Saturday was the fourth round of the Men's and Women's Legends tournament. Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis defeated Martina Navratilova and Jana Novotna, and John McEnroe and Patrick McEnroe defeated Mikael Pernfors and Mats Wilander.
