RG Round 2: Maria Sharapova def. Nadia Petrova [11] 6-2, 1-6, 8-6

Fantastic from Maria! She was hitting extremely well in the first set and left Nadia kind of shell shocked. In the second she lost her way a bit and was quite nervous, hitting errors off both wings, allowing Nadia to hit some beautiful shots. In the 3rd, wow, she really woke up and there were flashes of some of her best tennis, pummelling down the line, cross-court. I am so happy, she done so well today and if she does meet Venus in QFs, she will take her out, without a doubt


Paszek & Chakvetadze & Vaidisova & Sharapova & Pavlyuchenkova & Vekic.

Great win for Maria. Pathetic for Nadia though...

Nadia came through in the end, though at times I was worried she wasn't going to choke.

Nice, nice, nice fight from Maria. The serve was clutch, believe it or not. And I actually missed her brand of consistent aggression.

It'd be a great story to have the Natural Champions of the Tour coming into form by the 2nd week. Would make for great matches, too.

C'mon Maria, Serena and Venus!!!

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

YES! I'm so happy for her. Somehow Maria is always involved in epic matches in RG.

Great win. Pathetic for Nadia ...can't even beat Maria on clay.

It's nice to have someone back on tour that actually knows how to win...
