Re: Australian Open R3:  Maria Sharapova d.  Venus Williams 6-1 6-3
I have never been impressed with anything about Sharapova's game, but I was extremely impressed tonight. She is playing very well. Playing like this, I'd like to see how she matches up against the other two members of the top 3.
Venus may or may not ever play her best again. Who knows. This certainly wasn't it though.
