French Open Results: Maria Sharapova Defeats Sara Errani In Finals, Collects Career Grand Slam

Maria Sharapova's victory over Sara Errani was the big story out of Saturday's action at the 2012 French Open. Sharapova overwhelmed Errani, driving the pace and making the most of her size and power advantage to win in straight sets, 6-3 and 6-2. With the victory Sharapova becomes the 10th woman in the history of tennis to collect a career Grand Slam. Errani doesn't go home with nothing, however, entering the tournament as the no. 21 seed and making it to the final will surely send her up the ranks.

The fourth round of the Men's Legends and Women's Legends tournaments took place on Saturday as well. That saw John McEnroe and Patrick McEnroe beat Mikael Pernfors and Mats Wilander and Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis defeat Martina Navratilova and Jana Novotna.
