Miami R2: [WC] Petra Martic v [16] Maria Sharapova - WWW?

Should be an easy one for Maria, no? I have no idea how Petra is playing.

Sharapova has no business losing more than 6 games to this girl.

If Maria's gonna be in good form she could kill Petra but if not Martic has a chance. She likes to mix game, playing drop shots, serve & volley, moonballing but she's not the strongest girl out there so we'll see who'll win.

Interesting... when she was in Warsaw 2010 she didn't display all these about her game...

If Maria doesn't play first strike tennis she'll probably end up with a bit of a battle, since Martic is a player who mixes it up well. But Pova should still win in two sets I think.

This is a good section for Maria. I dont expect surprises early in her draw

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!!

Petra is playing better than she was the last two thirds of 2010 that's for sure. But I'd still say realistically Maria will win this in two. That said, as a big fan of Petra's I'd be delighted to be wrong.

Oh one other thing that does need to be noted about Petra, she does love playing against pace and she does tend to play her best against big hitters, which could make things interesting, although I'm not letting myself get my hopes up and Maria did play very well last week, aside from her semifinal.

It's nice to see a few people voting for a Pova win again.
