Maria Sharapova enjoyed a low-key celebration to reaching her first French Open final and reclaiming the world number one spot after a four-year absence - she ordered hotel room service.

"Yeah, my celebration was room service and a massage. How exciting, huh? Yeah, that's as good as it gets before a final," said the Russian on Friday, 24 hours before she tackles Sara Errani of Italy for the French Open title.

Sharapova guaranteed a return to the world number one ranking by beating Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in Thursday's semi-finals, before heading back to her hotel and her conservative celebrations.

But the second seed insisted that she has always been determined to stick to her routines, both during and after matches as she targets becoming the 10th woman to complete a career Grand Slam.

"I think it's always nice to have a routine. I have always had my own little routine during the matches since I was very young. I've kind of stuck to it, win or lose," she said.
