Paris, May 31: Defending French Open champion Maria Sharapova moved into the third round on Friday by finishing off a rain-interrupted 6-2, 6-4 victory over 19-year-old Eugenie Bouchard of Canada.




The match was suspended on Thursday night with Sharapova up a break in the second set at 4-2.

She only had the tiniest bit of trouble closing things out on Friday, erasing a couple of break points in the final game. On the second, 2012 Wimbledon junior champion Bouchard wasted a chance to get to 5-all when she flubbed a backhand long, then covered her face with her hand.

Sharapova took the next two points.

She completed a career Grand Slam by winning the French Open last year, adding to titles at Wimbledon in 2004, the U.S. Open in 2006 and Australian Open in 2008.
