Saw Sharapova vs Petrova on Tennis Channel

It was great match, Maria pump her fist after every point like always, and Nadia showed some fire in her aswell, Maria broke Nadia's serve at 4-4 3rd set, which is the key of her victory, and she finished it with an ace up the T. The 3rd set looks like more like men's tennis, where the one who breaks serve the first time will win the set, but of course wiht more entertaining rallies.

Amazing how hard Maria's grunt is, it is a SCREAM more than a grunt, and more amazingly is how hard she hits the ball, and she reminds me a bit of Mirjana Lucic who keeps banging the ball so very hard, but the only difference is Lucic hits it in 1 out of 100, while Maria is way more consistent, although hitting hard = more unforced errors.

Great tennis from both players, very entertaining.

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!
