Maria Sharapova defeats Patty Schnyder, wins second straight Acura Classic


In the Acura Classic final on Sunday, world No. 2 Maria Sharapova of Russia won her first title of the year overcoming world No. 17 Patty Schnyder of Switzerland in three sets 6-2 3-6 6-0.

What I can say about the match is that Schnyder, seeded 11th, was excellent on numerous occasions throughout the final, but the player with consistent domination was top-seeded Sharapova.

To get to the final Sharapova beat Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand, Tatiana Golovin of France, Sania Mirza of India, and Anna Chakvetadze of Russia.

Winning the Tier I tournament in San Diego Maria Sharapova earned $181,980 and 430 points (not enough to bring her back to No. 1 position in the WTA Tour singles rankings), while Patty Schnyder received $92,410 and 300 points.
