Sharapova sets sights on more Grand Slams

She acknowledged that there were elements in the game of several key rivals -- Williams, Azarenka and Li -- that can give her problems. Sharapova's 6-2, 6-2 victory over Caroline Wozniacki in the title match gave her a second Indian Wells WTA crown, to go with the one she captured in 2006.

The Russian completed a career Grand Slam with her French Open triumph last year, when she also briefly returned to the top of the rankings for the first time since 2008.

Her run to Sunday's Indian Wells final ensured she'll supplant Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka as No. 2 in the world behind American Serena Williams.
