Sharapova wary of Errani threat

It will be power and star-appeal against guile and honest endeavor on Saturday when Maria Sharapova takes on Sara Errani for the French Open title in Paris.

Second-seeded Russian Sharapova won through to the Championship match with a 6-3, 6-3 win over fourth seed Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, while 21st seed Errani of Italy ousted Australian sixth seed Samantha Stosur 7-5, 1-6, 6-3.

The stakes could hardly be higher for Sharapova, who is already assured of regaining the world No 1 spot she last held in 2008 before a shoulder injury nearly wrecked her career.
