Wimbledon 2012: Maria Sharapova's opening waltz

World number one Maria Sharapova waltzes past Australian Anastasia Rodionova 6-2 6-3 on Centre Court in her first round match at Wimbledon.

The French Open champion says it's difficult to adjust to the grass with "no practice" but feels she can get better as the tournament progresses.

The Russian raced to a 5-0 first set lead before the world number 133 began to get a foothold in the game but Sharapova proved too strong for her opponent.
