Routine enough win. Makarova next

Six of her seven double faults were in the first set. I'm not too worried about her serve as long as she keeps adjusting it well.

Doesn't sound like she played fantastic, but it's hard to argue that much with a 6-4 6-2 scoreline Doublefaults undoubtedly a worry though, after holding them down so well all year up until this tournament.

I think Makarova might give her a tougher match than the AO, possibly a 3-setter, but Maria should definitely end up winning it no matter how long it takes to get there.... she's going to have to step it up if she gets Li in the QFs though.

Re: Miami R3: Maria Sharapova b. Sloane Stephens 64 62

It's a concern that her DF spell seems to be back, but it's still a win I guess..

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

Can't see her losing to Makarova, although I can see a Sharapova Special.

Oh and on the DF apparently they've been pretty high among most of the players so far...

It`s was alright performance from Maria. She should`ve won more easily if not for the DFs and mini errorfest late in the first set. Still i`m pleased that she won it in straight sets.

It's no more than a 50/50 proposition that Li can get by Sabine.
