Doha R2: Maria Sharapova def. Galina Voskoboeva & The Wind 64 46 61

MARIA
Vosko was playing really really good today, if she continues like this in the next tournaments she'll climb all the way up thro the official rankings! She kinda had troubles finishing the second set tho.

Anyways, Masha was back and on fire in the third set!

The wind was so tough, and so was her opponent.

That really wasn’t the first match you want, but she stepped it up in the third.

Overall I think Maria played very well, maybe a little to defensive in the second but you can also blame the wind for that, and of course her opponent, it’s very typical that Maria brings out the best tennis in someone.

Well done Maria!

Vosko won more games than Davenport, Dementieva and Henin combined

Nice to see Maria back in human form

Excellent match for the first two sets in atrocious conditions.

Keep improving Galina.

galina. so proud of you. best tournament in a long, long time. hopefully this is the push needed to work back into the top 100.
as for maria, this is not the kind of result you'd expect from her. i'm sure the wind was a big factor and maria got through it in the end. good clutch stuff and she moves on.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Re: Doha R2: Maria Sharapova def. Galina Voskoboeva & The Wind 64 46 61

Awesome match from both players in first and second set. SP in 2nd set from Voskoboeva was unbelievable.

It was an difficult first round for Sharapova because of these conditions with the weather, rebound ace (1st round is always a little problem) and Voskoboeva, who played her best match of career.

Great performance!

MARIA OPENS UP DOHA CAMPAIGN WITH A WIN

In very windy conditions, Maria advanced to the 3rd round at the Qatar Total Open in Doha after she defeated Galina Voskoboeva of Russia 6-4 4-6 6-1 in 2 hours and 5 minutes.

The 1st set took 44 minutes as Maria won it 6-4. In the middle of the set both players traded breaks and Maria got the crucial break to lead 5-4 and took the set on her serve.

Maria lost her 1st set of the year in the 2nd set as Voskoboeva took it 6-4.

In the 3rd set Maria was back and on fire as she re-took control of the match as she took the set 6-1.

Maria will play the 3rd round on Thursday and will play either Amelie Mauresmo of France or Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand.

I didn't see the match, but I hope that the close scoreline was due to Galina's good play.

Maria will need to step it up for sure.
