Maria Sharapova and Lewis Hamilton make it a double victory for TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer has enjoyed double victory celebrations in the past week: Roland-Garros for Maria and the Canada Grand-Prix for Lewis. With these results, Maria is standing  at number 1 in the WTA ranking and Lewis is leading the F1 World Championship. Beautiful Rebels at the top.

Maria Sharapova

On Saturday June 9th, the Russian TAG Heuer Ambassador won the only Grand Slam tournament she had yet to win. She had to show her best tennis during 90 minutes against Sara Errani, but her experience and really good current form helped her in winning 6-3, 6-2. 

Sporting a TAG Heuer Formula 1 Lady Steel & Ceramic on her wrist, she showed off the Roland Garros trophy to the French public: "It's the most unique moment I've experienced in my career. I never thought I would have that. I thought that when I won Wimbledon at 17, I thought that would be the most treasured moment of my career. But when I fell down on my knees today I realised that this was extremely special, and even more so."

Maria now becomes only the 6th Woman Tennis Player to have won the US Open, the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the French Open since the beginning of the Open era. Standing at the top of the WTA rankings, after a Final at the Australian Open and a victory in Roland Garros, Maria is now looking forward to a second victory in Wimbledon, starting in 2 weeks time.

"I could have said, 'I don't need this. I have money, I have fame, I have victories, I have Grand Slams.' But when your love for something is bigger than all those things, you continue to keep getting up in the morning when it's freezing outside, when you know that it can be the most difficult day, when nothing is working, when you feel like the belief sometimes isn't there from the outside world, and you seem so small," said Sharapova, "But you can achieve great things when you don't listen to all those things."

Lewis Hamilton

On Sunday June 10th in Canada, Lewis Hamilton became the 7th winner in F1 in 7 GP's so far this season! Lewis realised the perfect race, with a good tyre strategy which saw him overtake Alonso and Vettel within the last ten laps. 

On the podium, he proudly celebrated his victory with his TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 on his wrist: "Incredible race today. Thank you so much to the team and to all the fans that have continued to support me through everything."

Beside Lewis, on the second step of the podium, TAG Heuer new ambassador Romain Grosjean celebrates his best place in F1 this season. The Franco-Swiss driver did also an incredible race finishing 2,5 seconds behind Lewis Hamilton.

Scoring 25 points, Lewis took back the lead of the F1 Drivers' Championship ranking. He is now looking forward to the next Grand-Prix in Valencia, Spain on June 24th.
