Masha Risorge Al Foro

Even without knowing much Italian, even I can get the message.

Maria Sharapova wins the Italian Open. After her so early Wimbledon victory, she has struggled.

What is so admirable, is that she HAS struggled! And I have never seen her quit; in a point, in a game, in a match, in a tournament.  It is hard to imagine her frustration after such early success, fighting to beat players who were no challenge in her early days.

She seems ready now for the French Open.

I am really looking forward to those  two weeks!

(Meanwhile Djokovic beats Nadal again. A few years ago Nadal used the Italian Open in a final against Roger Federer to announce his claim to the French Open, which he won.)
