Sharapova Wins French Open For 2nd Time

Updated: Saturday, June 7 2014, 01:36 PM EDT

Maria Sharapova won her second French Open title in three years, overcoming some shaky serving Saturday to beat fourth-seeded Simona Halep 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-4 in the final.
  
Sharapova has struggled with her serve this week and had 12 double-faults in the final on Court Philippe Chatrier. But she was able to hold off Halep, and hold her serve in the final game, with steady groundstrokes that kept the Romanian on the run.
  
Sharapova also won the title at Roland Garros in 2012, completing a career Grand Slam. She lost in last year's final to Serena Williams.
  
Halep, who was ranked only 57th heading into last year's French Open, was playing in her first major final.
