Re: Madrid QF: (8) Maria Sharapova def. (2) Li Na 2-6 7-6(5) 6-3
What a horrible piece of crap match from both players. I don't know if it was the quick turnaround from yesterday's matches that effected them, but that was lousy tennis. You never like to see matches decided by which one makes the fewer mistakes in an errorfest.
My prediction yesterday was that Maria would somehow find a way in 3-sets to win and that's what we got. I just didn't expect it to be that ugly. Once again, admirable fight from Maria when things looked bleak. Even when she's playing frightening tennis, she seldom lets it bother her.
