Maria Sharapova wins US Open title

Maria Sharapova wins US Open 2006Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova won the 2006 US Open, her 2nd Grand Slam title after her suprise Wimbledon crown in 2004.

Sharapova claimed the title on Saturday beating Belgium’s Justine Henin-Hardenne in straight sets 6-4, 6-4.

I am glad to see Sharapova winning a Grand Slam again, it shows that she’s capable of being at the top in tennis arena, and not just a camera-posing teenager that’s interested in all those multi-million dollars endorsement.

Credits to Henin-Hardene as well, she reached all 4 Grand Slam finals this season, not many tennis players could have done that in their career.
