Sharapova was all smiles (and a little tear) at the end of match. She thanked her team and her parents for "being her rock" and praised her fellow finalist Sara Errani for "a great tournament" and "a difficult final match". In a way, she dedicated this victory to everyone who said she would never win Roland Garros.

The photo we publish was posted by Nike this morning on Facebook, and was their way to show how much they believe in "Masha".
