USO R2: (29) M. Sharapova (RUS) def. (WC) C. McHale (USA ) 6-2, 6-1

7 DF/1 Ace

I'm quite happy she pulled through this one She had a few bad moments with serve, and a VERY lucky challenge on a second serve on break point. Good luck against Oudin I think she can make QF at least, especially since Oudin has that injury and that might bother her during the match.

US Open R2: (29) Maria Sharapova d. (WC) Christina McHale 6-2 6-1

A real bore out there, Sharapova was average at best but still throughly overwhelmed McHale.

McHale has potential, but is still very raw, still a good experience for her.

Nice try McHale. You hit to much into Maria strike zone and wasn't used to the power. Hope for a great future.

are these US Open courts blazing fast, or Sharapova's groundstrokes are lightning fast? I swear I never saw a woman pound the ball so hard, she must be possesed or something

Well done Maria Not as good as round 1, but still pretty impressive.

Glad I've finally got to see McHale play. Although overwhelmed today, she's a handy player who definately has a future in the game. Not sure how far she'll go, but right now I'd say top 100 at least. I wish her well.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Serve sucked, but ground game was fucking ON for the MOST part. WD

LOL, she played pretty well apart from the serve. I dunno why everyone goes crazy when she doesn't play a perfect match. Chill, she still only lost 3 games.
