Maria eases through the 2nd round at Acura 6-3 6-3

Very good start for Maria at the Acura Classic with a straight sets defeat of Lilia Osterloh 6-3 6-3

Hard to analyse really without any video or stats!

Go Maria

how is 6-3 6-3 an "ease" against a player out of the top 200 for a top 10 player? j/k

See the other thread on this game regarding the recent form of Osterloh.

By easing through I wasnt saying she did it "easy", although she wasnt overly troubled.
I was saying she eased her way through to the next round, perhaps not the best choice of words, when there are such critical posters around

I don't think he was being critical, judging by his "j/k" and I certainly wasn't being critical of you, but of Maria and her lack of form. I am spewing hatred right now, pardon me.

Yep no problems.
But I dont think Maria is lacking form, it certainly wasnt the worst performance by a Top 10 player so far.

Didn't get to watch the match, I only followed it with live scoring; but, it seemed Maria struggled at certain points. Even though the score was quite favourable (6-3, 6-3), I think Osterloh --- coming into the match quite hot --- put up a decent fight. Maria has had an almost 3 week layoff (except for WTT), and it can be expected that she would be kinda rusty coming in.

Good match by Maria though, overall!
