Maria Sharapova advances at French Open
Rain delays and cool conditions failed to faze No. 4-seeded Maria Sharapova, who wore long sleeves and beat Iveta Benesova 6-4, 6-1. at the French Open.
"It's sunny, and five minutes later it gets dark and windy," Maria said. "You just have to adjust and be patient." Maria, recovering from an ankle injury she aggravated last week, moved well on the center-court clay. "It was a lot better than my previous match," she said. "I didn't feel like I was moving great still, being cautious with the tape on, but pain-wise it felt a lot better."
Maria Sharapova now takes on either Australia's Alicia Molik or Anda Perianu of Romania for a place in the fourth round.
