She'll need to up her game from now on if she plans on going far in the tournament. Good win though!

Smile Wimbledon R1: (24) Maria Sharapova def. (Q) Viktoriya Kutuzova 7-5 6-4

An expected result and scoreline from Maria, I guess. We knew she wouldn't breeze through the match (she was 1-4 and 3-5 and, eventually, a setpoint down in the first set), but I think we still knew Maria would fight her way through. Given that it was Maria's first round match (all or most seeded players find the first match the most tricky), the fact that she's still finding her form since the shoulder injury, and that it's Maria's only third Wimbledon match in 2 years, I'll cut her some slack... but she's going to need to improve as the tournament goes on, especially with her service games. However, I'm sure she will.


On a side note... please stop falling over, Maria!

Kutuzova could've won this match. What a choke.

If she works on her serve AND Hawk-Eye, like a commentator said, she could do some damages in the future.

Congratulations, Miss Sharapova.

Re: Wimbledon R1: (24) Maria Sharapova def. (Q) Viktoriya Kutuzova 7-5 6-4

1) Learn how to hold serve
2) Learn how to challenge

Good account of herelf overall though.

Well played Maria:

2 players who can't serve. Vika is really weak when she has to hold.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

OP must be a fast typer



Maria got a bit lucky with a couple of calls, shame Kutuzova didn't realise she could challenge. I enjoyed this match nonetheless.
