Re: WWW Madrid R3:  Sharapova vs Stosur
sharapova was all over the place today and even in the zakopalova match despite the misleading scoreline, and i suspect her shoulder injury is back from some of the facial expressions mid-second set today and the terrible serving.
fast clay is probably the best possible conditions for samantha. especially if it's a hot day. not even someone as tall as sharapova will be able to smack those heavily spun shots back. this will obviously be on manolo santana, which does heat quite a lot.
hoping for a good match like the epic they played in the 2012 edition of stuttgart but won't be holding my breath.
stosur will win in 2. great chance for a semi after that since li quite simply doesn't know how to play stosur, regardless of their respective form and ranking.
