trophy watch: sharapova wins the australian open title



Maria Sharapova in her second try at the finals, finally took home the most dressed down of the Grand Slam prizes (look at those cute blue bows!) — the silver Austalian Open trophy. She took out Ana Ivanovic 7-5, 6-3, and didn’t lose a set during the entire tournament. The Serbian, who also lost in the finals of Roland Garros last year, rises to No. 2 in the rankings after Melbourne. Not a bad achievement, so she shouldn’t be too disappointed. Sharapova is currently ranked fifth.

I know all eyes are on the various Fed Cup ties right now; Sharapova, for example, is finally representing Russia against Israel. More on that later.

For now, watch Sharapova’s classy and touching speech. And browse a few photos, including Yuri Sharapov opting to leave his assassin hoodie at home and wearing all white instead. We also found a picture with Maria’s Nike shoes (the soles are pink — cute), and of course Ana, with her Edge dress from adidas, was one of the best-dressed players of the fortnight. See them after the cut…
