Re: Li Na def Maria Sharapova 6-2 6-2
Li is beautiful to watch when playing like that. Immaculate depth throughout, creating superb angles off non-angled balls (a Davenport speciality) and serving as accurately and efficiently as she can. A couple of wobbles of course, but nothing that superlative ball-striking couldn't resolve.
Pova's serve was shit from the start, and her return soon followed. Could never gain any momentum for any length of time, and began to get out-hit regularly. Li's use of width and deptn and general weight of shot made her look slow and clumsy also.
Li has great chances against Azarenka. She could certainly 'stress' her out.
