Re: WWW Cincy QF: [4] Maria Sharapova or [10] Sam Stosur

Yeah, even Alona beat Jankovic once and dare I say Hantuchova likewise with Venus The problem is, Stosur's serve won't hurt Maria at all and she must rely on some serious Poova making her entrance.

Stosur has been playing really well this week but normally becomes a headcase against Maria so I'm unsure but hopefully Martha will take it.

Re: WWW Cincy QF: [4] Maria Sharapova or [10] Sam Stosur

Stosur's forehand disappears against Maria. She can't handle Maria's power off that wing, has no time to set the FH up and puts too much on it. The kick serve is useless against someone as tall as Sharapova too.

Routine win for Maria in 2.

Re: WWW Cincy QF: [4] Maria Sharapova or [10] Sam Stosur

Sam is playing very well. Maria will have to be more consistent on her own serve if she wants to win this one.
I think her mental advantage over Stosur will help her. I predict a 6-4 3-6 6-3 win for Maria

Re: WWW Cincy QF: [4] Maria Sharapova or [10] Sam Stosur

Interesting how different Maria's odds would've been if Na had beaten Stosur... Na beat Maria the last time they played on Na's worst surface, whereas Maria beat Stosur pretty easily the last time they played on Stosur's BEST surface.

This should be Maria in 2. Stosur might push her into a tiebreak in one of the sets if she's lucky.

I think Sam benefited from the mental advantage she had over Li Na today, and Maria will do the same against her.

Maria in two

Maria's the favourite if she plays decent tennis but she could just NOT show up tomorrow.
