French Open winner Maria Sharapova has immediately turned her attention to Wimbledon after her victory in Paris at the weekend.

There is no denying that the SW19 crown is the one that players are hungry for the most, but only two days after her most recent Grand Slam triumph the Russian has turned her attention straight to Wimbledon.

Sharapova spoke of her optimism for the tournament when she said: “Wimbledon is right around the corner, and that’s what I’ll be working for.”

It has been a total of 10 years since she celebrated her first ever Grand Slam win on the grass courts in the English capital, and she hopes to return this year to secure another win.

The former World No. 1 was seen yesterday celebrating her French Open win outside the Eiffel Tower. Her triumph came after beating Simona Halep 6-4, 6-7 (7-5), 6-4 in a titanic three-hour battle in Paris.

Speaking after the match, she said: “This tournament means so much to me. It was a tournament when I was growing up that I wanted to win. This is the toughest Grand Slam final I've ever played."
