Russian top seed Maria Sharapova beat Germany's Kristina Barrois 7-5, 6-1 in the final of the WTA Strasbourg claycourt tournament here on Saturday to secure her second title of 2010.

The former world No. 1 trailed 3-5 in the first set to Barrois, contesting her first ever WTA final, but hit back to take it 7-5 and then cruised to victory in the second set.
Sharapova had already beaten three-time Strasbourg champion Anabel Medina Garrigues of Spain in Friday's semifinal.

The 23-year-old Russian superstar, who tasted success at Memphis in February, has been seeded 12th for the French Open beginning on Sunday.
