Two of Li's wins against Sharapova were during back-to-back victories in 2009 and 2010 in Birmingham, during the lowest points of Maria's career. The third was the RG semi where Li was extremely inspired having just beaten both Kvitova and Azarenka and Sharapova was playing horrendous tennis (she should've lost right away in the 2nd round against that french junior). The 4th and final win was against an injured Maria at the YEC.
maria played quite well at rg 2011

Li could easily fuck this up (and probably will), but she sure can't complain about the match-up.

Na does not need to defend much against Masha... she's the one dictating the pace in their recent matches...

The way Li lost/blew that Rome match, I wouldnt be surprised if it leaves her with mental scars she never recovers from in this matchup. She is that fragile mentally. Today will tell us alot if this is true or not.
