Re: Sharapova was simply outplayed

Ivanovic reminds me alot of JenCap for some reason.

Re: Sharapova was simply outplayed

If there was nothing wrong with Maria, then I'm sure you have an explanation why Maria started the 2nd set by holding serve, before she retired ?

Re: Sharapova was simply outplayed

I don't dislike Ana, and I far prefer her to Sharapova, but Maria has dropped many sets this year and gone on to win the match. You can say that Ana was playing very well, but who knows what the outcome would have been if Sharapova could have finished the match?

Come on the Bhoys!

Re: Sharapova was simply outplayed

Maria was struggling with her movement.

Her serve didn't have the usual speed because of her leg.

It's kind of obvious.

It affected her return too as she said in the press conference.

Re: Sharapova was simply outplayed

That's not how Maria usually hit. And not where usually place the ball.

What I've noticed though, is that since awhile everyone plays awfully well against Maria. Even the unseeded ones start to win sets against her.
Is the WTA game level suddenly rised , or it's Maria who's having problems?

That's a really good call. Her forehand on the run looked so much like Capriati it was eery. They have similar body types. If Ivanovic had a more consistent good backhand, I'd agree 100%. Good eye on that one.

Re: Sharapova was simply outplayed

I don't see evidence of any injury. Maria is running, trying to get down to get the low balls Ana was sending her way, and showed what for her is good movement. Is the chair ump new? It doesn't look like Carlos Bernardes - too much hair.

Ana's passing shots are great.
