Maria Sharapova has been playing well and cruising through the Australia Open. At the final, it seems like she was not at her best and Victoria Azarenka went on to score to win the game 6-3 6-0 claiming the championship title. Initially she was thinking of whether to quit tennis and now with this new championship, she can choose to retire in glory or perhaps move on to continue the game. Now being World Number One she can enjoy this moment and now her thoughts on the other things can be cast aside. Maria Sharapova though she did not win the championship she had moved up to the third spot and achieved at least a runner-up trophy too.
