Sharapova's elusive French Open title is one win away, and I can't see her letting this opportunity slip through the cracks. With no prime-time contender standing in her way, not winning the French Open would be a disaster.

What They're Saying

Errani has played well to get to this point, but she's not on the level of Sharapova. Errani is just surprised to get to this point, according to CBSSports.com: "It's incredible for me," Errani said. "I didn't expect it, and I'm here. So, I don't know what to say."

It sounds like she's just happy to be in this situation.

When players and teams seem like they are surprised to be in a championship situation, they are. It generally doesn't end well, either.

Sharapova will look to her experience in hopes of winning her first Grand Slam since 2008 and her first ever French Open.

 

Prediction

Sharapova is playing fantastic tennis right now. She's now the No. 1 player in the world, and she is full of confidence.

Sharapova wins in straight sets 6-4, 6-4.
