I watched the first set and I was impressed. Apart from one horrific miss, Sharapova's ball-striking, point set-up and movement were the best I've seen from her in a while. Let's see if she keeps it up.
QF vs Kerber. Interesting match. Maria seems in better form, should win.
Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour." Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Maria playing well at the end of the year.. When was the last time it happened? Probably 2007
In 2007 she lost 3rd rd at USO and 1st round in Moscow before playing well and making the finals of the SEC.
2006 was great. But the indoor season doesn't really exist anymore. She won USO, Zurich, and Linz, and came within 1 match of year end #1.
