Maria Sharapova got some MAJOR skills!
The Russian tennis star defeated Venus Williams at the Australian Open today, and she's extremely ecstatic!!
Excited about her win, Maria noted:
"I really wanted this victory. I was 5-1 up [in the second set] and made a couple more errors than I would have liked so I was very pleased to have served it out. When we both looked at the draw this was the match-up that we were both looking forward to. I was really excited to play Venus again. She is a great athlete and no matter where she is ranked she's always a very tough player to play."
Miz Sharapova took the opening set by breaking Venus' serve THREE times, which led her into a 3-0 lead in the second. However, even though Williams held off three break points in the fourth game, it just wasn't good enough.
Now, Sharapova's next contender is Kirsten Flipkens, which we're sure she's gonna beat!!
Werk it out guuuurrrrl!!
