Russian tennis sweatheart Maria Sharapova defeated Belgian ace Kim Clijsters 7-5 7-5 to win the Acura Classic in San Diego.
The 19-year-old Sharapova defeated Clijster for the first time in 5 meetings to claim her 2nd title of the year, and the 12th in her professional tennis career.
This tournament is Sharapova’s first event after Wimbledon exit, and seems like a good rest has pushed her back to form again.
