HK Final: [4]V. Williams def. [2]M.Sharapova 64 63

Venus' serve was just too much. There was little between the girls in the first. Venus broke in the 10th game. Venus went away with it in the second.

On to Melbourne!

Ah well, it was only an exhibition. But you know now this means Venus won't win the Australian Open. The winner of this never wins the AO. Venus played well, but I've seen Maria play a lot better!

What a terribly boring match. Good serving from both girls, silly errors from Maria in the first set to get broken. Second set seemed like Maria wasn't trying that hard and Venus just wanted to get it over with.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

Nice win for Venus
Sharapova needs to pick it up before the A.O

Commentators said Sharapova only had 4 errors in the first. 2 of which were the last two points of the first set.

Solid win there from Venus her serve was on fire and Maria only pushed her serve once to 30. Incredible display from Vee just marvellous!

Maria

Silly errors from Venus at times. But she got the job done and I can't wait for Melbourne.
