Smile IW semis: Maria Sharapova def. Martina Hingis 6/3 6/3

Maria cruises into the finals of IW. She beat Martina in two straight sets. Martina was doing to many easy mistakes in the first set and Maria just overpowered Martina. In the second set there were more long points and Martina wasn´t doing so many unforced errors. Martina came back from 4:1 down to 3:4 it was getting close there. It was a pretty good match.

Martina got an answer to her question: "What's so special about Maria?"

I guess the all-knowing Marshmellow's prediction of Martina "desecrating" Maria wasn't even close. Maria blew Powder-Puff off the court.

that was SUPER Maria!!!!
I'm reeking about the game where Maria hit a winner one the line, I mean ON the line, but the linesmen called it out... but it seems Maria won anyway so all good!
That makes it 2-1 in the H2H!
Seems the alleged "Sfarapova" has made two consecutive finals

Yeah, I think that it clearly shows that she is a witty player and has talent but still is being overpowered by top players, she lost pretty easily to dementiva, mauremo, sharapova and henin. She would suit a 8-10 position in the rankings now...

Hingis played horribly and served really poorly, but Maria was on fire. Wow.

Maria will be dead by Justine tomorrow..as usual.

She has no game whatsoever. Just nothing. Without her power an ant can walk all over her game.

Martina didn't play very well, way too many errors and she missed some easy shots, but it was a hard battle out there and I would have loved to see Martina hold her serve more often, she was overpowered too many times... She also looked a bit tired, but Maria played very well, full credit to her!
