French Open 2014: Sharapova 'happy & proud' of win

Maria Sharapova, the 2012 champion, is "happy and proud" with a battling three-set French Open semi-final victory over Canada's Eugenie Bouchard.

The Russian felt her opponent played "exceptional tennis" but says "I fought, I scrambled and I found a way to win".

Following the 4-6 7-5 6-2 win, Sharapova will play Romanian fourth seed Simona Halep in Saturday's final.
