Unhappy YEC RR: Maria Sharapova (2) defeats Kim Clijsters (6) 6/4, 6/4

Maria's into semis, isn't she?

She played WAY better than yesterday. Kim was not bad but was really defensive. She wasted a lot of opportunities in the 2nd set, many BPs, including in the last game... I think she needs more time to challenge the very best after coming back from injury. She's not ready yet.

btw, all the linesmen's decisions were CRAP. Both players challenged MANY, MANY points and were right. Kim was really looking fiery at times!

kim definitely needs more time to come back. she didnt play any top, top players in hasselt, so perhaps wasnt quite ready. an ace is a nice way for sharapova to finish though

I think the umpires don't overrule anymore since the introduction of the challenge. I don't like that and esp. Kim needed to ask the challenge so often.

Overall a pretty good match IMO.

I though Masha is the second seed.

I felt for Kim (and occasionally Maria) because there were so many wrong calls that they had to challenge and it was really halting the match.

Kim wasted so many BP's.

Really decided the match, it should have gone to three sets.
