Sharapova just simply lucky

She is just lucky, isn't she. Sharapova draws a tough quarterfinal opponent, and she plays like crap. Of course, luck of Sharapova, Kuznetsova plays even worse. Man, are those some horrible stats. That msut have been one ugly match.
Now here's Venus, in the 4th round, having a differential of only -3, playing a fairly good match, and she still loses. Sharapova and Kuznetsova would have both gotten down on their knees and bowed to Venus or Molik. It's unfortunate that things like this have to happen.

Venus= night match=not hot and sunny
Sveta= Faster than Molik=less winners more errors
Sharapova and Sveta= Better return of serve than Molik= serve domination.

There is a very simple reason why the match was so damn ugly. The heat. Both girls were impacted; the stronger and fitter one survived in the end. This has NOTHING to do with luck.

Hey, it depends on whether you believe in luck.

I don't.

Because I'm still talking! That's right!

Wasteful, pointless randomness for your amusement.

maria losing to venus good one.
watch the match and then decide how it was played. to look at stats in this tournament can be very misleading. the aussie website is all over the place on the definition of an unforced error.

How is she lucky? Looked totally worn out in Asia, played no
warm ups in Australia. Struggled against lower ranked players in
3 sets, played a fresher Sveta, who's only problem last week was
getting more attention from the media than ever before in her career.
And she lost the first set at 6-4 too?

You've got to hand it the kid, she's a real trooper.
