Maria Sharapova completed a career Grand Slam by earning her first French Open championship on Saturday. But does that place her among the all-time greats in women's tennis?

History on the line for Sharapova?

Maria Sharapova owns three Grand Slam titles, good for 15th in the Open era. One more would mean a tie for 12th with Kim Clijsters, among others, while four more would mean top 10.

The next women's tennis star?

Petra Kvitova won Wimbledon last year. Caroline Wozniacki spent more than 60 weeks ranked No. 1. But is Victoria Azarenka (above) the real rising star in the women's game?
