Maria Sharapova battles past Sara Errani to enter Miami Open semis

Sharapova is trying to become just the third woman to win both the prestigious Indian Wells and Miami hardcourt titles in the same year. Steffi Graf accomplished the feat in 1994 and 1996, and Clijsters did so in 2005.

Miami: Maria Sharapova kept her quest for a first Miami title on track on Wednesday with a hard-fought 7-5, 7-5 quarter-final triumph over Italy's Sara Errani.

"With all the tournaments I have played, this one I have been so successful at but yet I haven't won it," said Sharapova, a four-time finalist at the Miami WTA and ATP Masters hardcourt tournament but never the winner.

"I've been so close to winning," she said. "I would love to win this. I've been coming to this tournament since I was a little kid. It would mean a lot to win it."
