      It had eluded her throughout her tennis career. Dozens of tournament victories and millions of dollars couldn't bring her any closer to that elusive goal. On Sunday, Maria Sharapova accomplished it. She got herself a Porsche.

      Sharapova defeated No. 1 Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-4 this weekend in Stuttgart, winning her first title of 2012 and receiving a car for tournament title-sponsor Porsche for her effort. The world No. 2 had joked on Saturday night that she had a lot of cars, but not one from the German automaker.

      It was just the second loss of the year for Azarenka, who is still without a premier victory on clay. She was treated for a wrist injury after getting routed in the first set.

      Sharapova won a clay title for the third consecutive season.

      "I had lost the last few previous encounters with Victoria, so I was extremely motivated today," she said after the match. "When I got the chance to go out and play her again I knew I had to change a few things. Before I was maybe a little bit impatient and went for a bit too much sometimes, but this time I was really patient. I was aggressive but consistent when I had to be against her.
      Which would you rather drive?

      well I guess this would be one of the few times I'd prefer driving from the back seat, so to speak.

      I would drive the car. If it gives you problems, you can shut it off.

      ...and the car will get you multiple real women
      Easy like Sunday Morning.

      No matter how good looking she is, someone, somewhere, is tired of her s***.
      Not of the Carrera.

      She's too tall for me and I can't sell her after I'm tired of her.

      Porsche it is.

      I would've gone all My Super Sweet 16 crying on the ground yelling they ruined my life for giving me a Cabrio instead of a Coupe. The steering wheel is probably the stock, non-Sport Design item, too.

      ^^ Depends on the market. But from a financial Lounge standpoint; Porsche it is. Maintenance wise it should be less expensive. They are only so many things you can prevent with oil changes...

      As much as I loathe the wrong-engined 911, I was gonna post I'd take the Russian. But you guys are right; the 911 would cost less in maintenance and upkeep in the long run, and you could also unload it for a younger model a lot easier later on

      I am willing to bet that she makes more than all of us combined, so I have a feeling that she'd be the one with an upper hand.

      Since when does having millions of dollars not get someone "closer to the elusive goal" of owning a Porsche?

      Funny, but very true. I usually don't go for convertibles, but that is sharp, almost looks like a newer speedster.
