Paris: When Maria Sharapova finally got out on court Friday for the second round of the French Open, there was no stopping her.
The three-time Grand Slam champion, who was forced to wait an extra day because play ran late on Thursday, easily reached the third round with her second straight rout.
"I feel like I warmed up like 20 times for this match," said Sharapova, who beat Ayumi Morita of Japan 6-1, 6-1. "It was one of those days where you just want to get on the court and then, you know, you're at the courts all day, and sitting, waiting around, eating, sleeping. It's like a good way to put someone into retirement."
