Roland Garros F: Sharapova equals Hingis in slam count

Maria Sharapova def. Simona Halep 6-4 6-7(5) 6-4

First Roland Garros in 13 years to go to 3 sets, Sharapova claims her 5th Grand Slam to equal Martina Hingis in slam counts. Sharapova didn't play great, but was clutch at key moments as she fought her way to another win. Simona competed very well and would have done better if she had calmed down a bit for important points. The Romanian played too passively on some points and too aggressively on others. However, this match will give Simona the needed experience to choose her shots well, and I am sure that she will win Roland Garros some day. Sharapova caps her clay season with an impressive 3 titles and only 1 loss. She will go into the 2nd half of the season relaxed as she has absolutely nothing to defend. Great for tennis and great for her fans in Singapore! Well done Maria!
