US Open 2nd. round Maria Sharapova defeats Lino 6-0 6-1

Lino would have had a better chance on clay, she's one grand-slam too late here --

The commentators after Lino's triple-0 (aces, winners and some other stat).

SIDENOTE : Maria's serve though in the second set, not reassuring -- DFs out of nowhere in the net ?

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Yeah I couldn't get that. It was Lino of all players - a guaranteed flop slice return back. She should have just spun the ball into court

Good match for Pova overall though.

30-17 W/UE
13/14 Net points won

NID really.
Moving very well and sharp off the ground, hardly had to try in the second.
Lost rhythm on her serve in her past couple of games but nothing too worrisome.

Onwards Maria.

Yuryevna,
Always

Serving 2006 style. Won't read too much into those random DFs towards the end as she was basically hitting a 1st serve instead of a 2nd given the placement. Beautiful movement running around the BH to hit those FH winners that won her this title in 2006.

The inevitable semi against Azarenka should be a cracker.

slightly worrying with those double faults in the 2nd set out of nowhere but otherwise good

This is why many people dislike the likes of Lino. Ugly game.

Really was wondering what that Lino girl was doing out there on the court all match long. Congrats Maria.

Honestly, unless she chooses to "tune" some element of her game, this kind of match serves no purpose for Maria later on.

They were in the net, these kinds of double-faults have to do with technique (she was retaking her toss sometimes) but this match was boring as hell, Maria including was bored -- but she was really going for her second serves, well, it's good she respects her opponent's returning skills I guess if they were somehow existent.
