Re: Li Na def Maria Sharapova 6-2 6-2
Maria peaked too soon this tournament, simple as that. Everyone has an off match at a Grand Slam and the key is to have it in the early rounds, and then to hit top form when you need it. Li played great too of course.
I think it is not that.
I watched Maria play Na many times, and even though Maria was winning last year, I couldn't believe it each time how much of an awkward matchup for Maria it is. Her shots and serve go straight into Li Na's strikezone. While Li Na's shots go into a very inconvenient zone for Maria.
Rome's final, last year was exactly same match. It's just that Li choked at 6:4, 4:0. But it looked exactly same.
Just a bad match up for Maria.
I expect Vika to handle Li routinely.
