Maria Sharapova confident about French Open bid
Former World No.1 Maria Sharapova who completed a three-peat of titles at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart on Sunday by beating the Serbian star Ana Ivanovic in an entertaining three set battle has said that she is confident about her chances at the French Open after starting her campaign on clay with a trophy under her belt.

Four-time Grand Slam holder Maria Sharapova has warned her rivals on writing her off as the Russian believes that she still has a lot more to accomplish on the tennis courts. The superstar who would have dropped outside the top-10 if she had failed to defend her crown at the Porsche Arena got a nice confidence booster after winning that title in Stuttgart.

The 27 year old said: "I've had very different phases in my career. I've had one when I was young and winning Grand Slam tournaments at 17 years old. Then I had another period, going through a tough injury and climbing myself back up to the top, and then winning another Grand Slam. And this year, after another injury with the shoulder, I'm finding myself again in a bit of a comeback."

She added: "Moments like this, winning in Stuttgart, are very special because that's what you work so hard for, trying to win from the first point to the last one of a tournament. I'm really proud I did that here. I just want to build on what I've started here. It's still a long way to go into the French Open, I have a couple of tournaments, but I hope to play better with each match that goes by from here on."
