Bartoli-Sharapova: at 4-0
This seems to be pure baseline power tennis, and Bartoli is winning by hitting harder and deeper. The depth of her shots was insane.
That said, Sharapova has proven she can hold her level of play. Bartoli has proven she often doesn't. The smart bet is Sharapova plays the same way tomorrow, and Bartoli plays worse.
OTOH, Bartoli is actually in shape right now. About in the kind of shape Ivanovic was, four years ago, but the point in Bartoli's case is 'not fat', as opposed to 'slender'.
She's been playing pretty well. And nothing I've seen from Sharapova post-shoulder indicates she has an answer to Bartoli playing this way. Sharapova only plays one way.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
