Serena Williams takes on Maria Sharapova in the 2013 women’s final at Roland Garros, with each player looking for their second French Open title on the clay of Paris.
The odds are stacked quite firmly in the Serena Williams’ favour, as the American has won 13 of the pair’s 15 matches between each other.
Sharapova last beat Williams in 2004, when she briefly led the head-to-head 2-1, but the Russian has only won three sets in the following twelve matches, with Serena triumphing in each.
On paper then, it is set to be a hugely one-sided encounter, but both ladies are least comfortable on clay of all the surfaces and Sharapova will feel this is a chance to cause a rare upset.
Regardless, Serena Williams will be firm favourite to win her first title at Roland Garros since 2004.
