AO R3: Maria Sharapova def. Julia Goerges 4-6, 6-4, 6-4

C'mon!




Miserable first set, but got much better in the 2nd!

Some great serving and fight! from her after 2-2 in the 2nd set. Really pulled herself together and elevated her level of play to win that set and eventually the match.

Little loss of focus in the 3rd, but overall a good performance today!

Venus or Petko next!


Julia. Too bad (for her) that she couldn't keep her level of the first set up. Better luck next time.

That was such a great match, even though she put me through hell in that last set

I didn't even know who Maria was in the first set - 4 winners?!

She turned it around and played some good tennis. Goerges played well, she'll be a threat in the future.

I knew she wouldn't lose to the likes of Julia.

Once she started playing the slight CC angle and placing the next shot DTL, she sent overrated and annoying Julia right out of Melbourne.

Maria finally played like herself in the last two sets.

Well done Maria. Some great serving from the 2nd half of the 2nd set onwards.

Julia was utter shit for the first 4 games of the third while Maria was raising her game to much higher levels, and that deficit was too much for her to recover from Still, good learning experience for her and I'm sure she'll reach a fourth round at a Slam very soon

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

Great match, Maria's quality was pretty high in the last 2 sets and Julia wouldn't go away, very competitive. Nice handshake at the end.

BTW, awesome way to finish Maria!!

Venus Ana Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Masha Bencic Kristyna Keys Dani
Sania Vika Nicole Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval
