Thumbs up Roland Garros 1st Round: M. Sharapova (4) Defeats M. Washingthon 6-2 5-7 7-5

What a game....wow Washinghton was playing out of her mind.....

Feel sorry for Mashona Though....she played so well but wasted 3 match points......

Well Done Maria, you'll have to admire the champion and the fighter in Maria she did very well to get through this match from the time she was 2-5 down in the final set until she managed to win 5 games in a row and clinch the win

Mashona...

Amelie - Marcos

After the first set, I almost fought this was a shoe-in win for Maria, but seeing how it turned out I'm angry TSN or RDS won't show this in Canada

Today is one of the moments I'm really proud of Maria Sharapova True fighter, like Elena Dementieva.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Oh well. I still think Safina will get out of this quarter of the draw. Bad ankles usually don't get that much better with playing. Benesova won't be any easier on Sharapova. She has to regroup fast.

What an incredibly gutsy performance from Sharapova. She was down 2-5 and three match points, only to comeback and steal victory from the jaws of defeat. That is why she is a champion that is why she commands respect. Well done Maria, gutsy win despite being restricted and starring down the barrel of defeat.

I'm sure Maria came to the net afterward and said, "I know exactly how you feel."

Congrats.

Good. Not a huge Sharapova fan, but I like Safina and Kuznetsova even less. Maria's the only hope in this weak quarter to prevent one of those two from making the semis.

What fight! What heart! Simply brilliant! What a thrilling match!!!!!!!!! Mashona was playing so well, and has a fan in me, but Maria fought so hard. You could just never write her off! 2nd round against Benesova could be tough.

Just. Amazing. So proud to be her fan.
