Na played a very complete match. Better groundstrokes, movement, serving, mentality. Better athlete won.
Laughable that Chrissie Evert was still all over Maria's snatch after the first set.
The woman is a joke and when will Ted Robinson get out of Pova's twat? Topic related this is the best I've seen Li Na play---she kept her errors down and was really calm out there
P.S. when will Maria learn that hitting the ball harder will not keep it in?
Li played well but it was so simple that any width to Sharapova's forehand meant the point was over. Whether it was a out wide serve or forehand, Sharapova couldn't get anything to land in when even dragged a couple of steps wide to that side.
Pretty tame resistance at the end as well from Sharapova.
Not to spark up the equal prize money debate but only 12,000 tickets sold for ladies semi day, 20% unsold. Men's have 2 sell out semi finals over 2 session so 30,000 tickets. Nuff said.
Li was ok, but this was all about Maria and her terrible competitive spirit in this match. She just didn't want it and it was sad to watch. Li played smart but this was the worst i've seen maria play for a while.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)
-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.
A former GS champ beating a former GS champ is not shocking the world. Lets not act like David beat Goliath here.
Im a little shocked at the scoreline. but not that Li couldnt win. Evert said the other day between Sharapova/ Azarenka/ and Sloane any could win and I was thinking Li Na is no cakewalk. If on, shes better than any of them.
Sharapova hadnt played anyone though as others have said. She geared up for that match against Venus but she hadnt played anyone. Neither have any of the semifinalist though. save for 1 match really for each.
