Maria Sharapova came perilously close to an unwanted place in the record books on Wednesday when the sun finally shone at Roland Garros.

The Russian, seeking to complete her full set of grand slams in Paris, was two points away from defeat during her first-round match against unheralded Evgeniya Rodina, but finally prevailed after a two hour 28 minute tussle on Court Philippe Chatrier.

"I just hung in there," Sharapova said in a courtside interview after her 6-1, 3-6, 8-6 victory.
