33 UFEs from Ana pretty much tells the story. Poor shot selection at times, just inexperience coming through. And that brain fart at 30-0 5-4.

A good try though, i'm afraid losing another slam might begin to become heavy Baggage on Ana's shoulders. I hope she comes back strong.

Tremendous week for Sharapova. She was mentally too solid throughout the match except for a period in the middle of the first set. Too bad Ana couldn't take advantage of that lapse.

Sigh. Maria is really mentally tough but...I just find her hard to root for.

Fuck Yeah WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO Im over the moon right now. Maria Sharapova you are awesome thats all I can say. What fight she showed, she was just not going to denied. GS Title number 3. Well played Ana you did yourself proud. Im just so happy it was such hell to watch though I have never been so nervous about a tennis match.

Truly impressive two weeks fro Maria. Never dropped a set. Her first serve is now the BEST there is on the womens tour. Second serve looks vulnerable but i think she will be # 1 soon.

Ana - good tournament but so many UFEs today

Overall the final was a poor quality match.

Poor Ana

Maria deserved it.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

"I don't know that I changed all that much. They just found somebody worse." - Aging tennis bad boy Jimmy Connors, referring to John McEnroe, in 1984.

There can never be too many "Sister Slams!"

Ana but you played like shit. Maria was no where near her early levels off the ground but instead of taking the gift she decided to play even worse.
