Maria Sharapova: Queen of the court. With her win in the 2012 French Open, Maria Sharapova has climbed back to the number 1 spot in the World Tennis Association rankings. With her victory at Roland Garros, she became only one of 10 women ever to complete a grand slam – winning Wimbledon and the French, Australian and U.S. Opens. Her achievement is both a personal triumph, and an indication that Russia will continue to dominate women’s tennis tour.
