Re: USO SF: Azarenka def. Sharapova 3-6, 6-2, 6-4
This was a bit like Maria's Australian semi against Kvitova. Started amazing, had a let down in the second set, and then raised her level in the third. Difference is that Vika is a more solid player and Maria couldn't outnerve her into errors when the match got tight.
That ad court serve is just laughable.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
