On the other hand Makiri has lost only 3 matches in this season and only to top 10 players which are Sara Errani in Sydney, Serena Williams in Melbourne and Maria Sharapova in Indian Wells. Plus one retirement in Doha.

Eh. The vast majority of them were saved by Pova, rather than wasted by Kirilenko.

She was winning basically all the points on her first serve, so if she got the first serve in there was more or less nothing Kiri could do. I don't think she lost a point on her first serve in the entire second set.

Sharapova was clearly better at the start till 4:2, after that the match was more even for a while. If Kiri could have taken one of those break points at 5:4 she would might have had a chance. But it is true, Sharapova played well one every one of them. In the second set she was just better, especially towards the end.

Good match and deserved victory.

I think the score line reflects the match nicely, Maria K also played well to win her games, no gifts involved.
