Maria Sharapova has done it. The tennis superstar has become just the tenth woman in tennis history to win all four Grand Slam titles, defeating Sara Errani to win the 2012 French Open final at Roland Garros 6-3, 6-2.
After winning match point, Sharapova fell to her knees, covered her face and her heart, shook hands with Errani, then jumped for joy.
Sharapova achieved the career Grand Slam on just her fourth Slam title, becoming the first woman to do so and the second player after Andre Agassi completed his set in the 1999 French Open.
Sharapova had previously won Wimbledon in 2004, the 2006 U.S. Open, and the 2008 Australian Open.
