Sharapova wins Australian Open 2008

Maria Sharapova has won this year’s Australian Open women’s finals against Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic (7-5, 6-3). It was a well anticipated finals between the two glamour girls of tennis with the latter being the crowd favorite. This was her second grand slam finals appearance since Roland Garros in France. I was also rooting for Ivanovic, but Sharapova was merciless on the court today. Last year she also reached the finals but didn’t win the title. This year was a different story. Without dropping a set she showed the world why in such very young age she already was able to win two grand slam championships: Wimbledon and the US Open respectively. Despite her win Sharapova will remain as No. 5 in the world rankings.

As for her part, Ana Ivanovic has nothing to be ashamed of. Although she lost she now moves to No. 2 in the world rankings from No. 4. World No. 2 at 20 years old? I’d take it. The Australian Open is just the first of the exciting grand slams to come this year. I’m sure we will see a lot of Ivanovic in the coming months. There’d be a lot of opportunities and being a future No. 1 is not far-fetched.
