PARIS, June 8 (UPI) -- Serena Williams defeated defending champion Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-4 Saturday, beating Sharapova for a 13th straight time to win her second French Open title.

Williams' second win at Roland Garros comes 11 years after her first and gives her at least two wins in every Grand Slam event. It comes 12 months after Williams was a very surprising upset victim in the first round of the 2012 French Open.

Since then, Williams is 68-3 with 11 tournament titles and has returned to the world No. 1 ranking.

 LAS VEGAS, May 22 (UPI) -- Former Major League Baseball player Jose Canseco has been accused of sexual assault, Las Vegas police said Wednesday.

 Police said they contacted Canseco during the morning and he had agreed to be interviewed, the Las Vegas Sun reported. The questioning had yet to take place.

 Canseco, 48, who lives in Las Vegas, clubbed 462 home runs, was a six-time all-star and won two World Series championship rings during a big-league career with seven teams that ran from 1985 to 2001 -- but was tainted by his admission he used steroids.

MADRID, May 12 (UPI) -- Serena Williams protected her world No. 1 ranking and Mutua Madrid Open title with a straight-set win Sunday over Maria Sharapova.

Williams, who lost only one set in the tournament, defeated Sharapova 6-1, 6-4. Williams is 13-2 all-time versus Sharapova, including a championship match win earlier this year in Miami.

The result kept Sharapova, No. 2 in the rankings, from regaining the No. 1 spot in the rankings.
