I have watched this match for the first time afew hours ago .. it's the only full match i watched for Simona 1.0
really , what's a difference simona had in her game !
despite the close result , Simona was very passive .. nothing but poor pushing most of match
She didn't make any winner in the 1st set and 4 for the whole match ,, even when she tried to attack , her balls was very weak and ineffective
I thank god that the first time i saw simona live was in New haven
not this match ,, maybe i wouldn't have been never a fan of her
tbh , i saw some highlights of Simona vs Kuznetsova match in Toronto 2011 and Simona was much better .... i think the confidence was the decisive factor of Simona breakthrough
but yes , I'm very curious to see how Simona would deal against Sharapova .. i think Simona in her best or near to it have great opportunity to beat her
