What a fail setup. If this is supposed to promote tennis in Brazil they should have gone for a serious match. This was a complete mess, the fun parts seemed forced as well and the crowd seemed confused at times as well.

It's quite devastating how easily Sharapova manages to beat Caro even if she isn't even trying, the last few games she basically lost interest and gifted her the TB.

you talk as if Caro takes exhibitions seriously, she went to the net more times today than all year plus she served crap all match and all of a sudden set point or match point down she would serve a bomb
This was NID, Caro looked great though , loved the moment when she started hitting balls into the crowd while Maria was having her interview

It's not like Sharapova was trying hard either. I say the level of commitment was comparable...and still the score is quite lopsided.

Re: Gillette Federer Tour: Sharapova def. Wozniacki 6-2 7-6(4)

when Rena has no interest and is tanking on exho with Aga, it's OK. But whatever Masha does, she is critisized...

I just treated this match as an off-season Exho, and it's not like i'm disappointed

PS: Caro really tried , it's just she is far from good form

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004

This She played club level against Sharapova in the NY exho then beat Serena a few weeks later and took Maria to 6-4 in the third.

Caro should stop playing those pointless exos and get more serious about her tennis game/career!

Caroline''Sunshine'' Wozniacki

You got yourself some haterZ

Don't take it so seriously neither player was trying and caro as usual tried to liven up the match as best she could in her own little quirky way. These exhos are really just a way for fans to see players and for companies to promote their businesses. Not to mention the players get paid a shit-load to do them.

At least we can all agree that Caroline's forehand is still........unique.

Very little tennis talent between these two players, which isn't what you want for a tennis exhibition.
