That was a nice quote by Sharapova from the Reuters article - very complimentory to say the least

Just huge. I've never seen Lindsay play a full match like that. 6-0 6-0 over the world #3 is phenominal.
I liked Maria's post-match interview. She didn't really make excuses, just said Lindsay was too good. But I still wish Lindsay had talked more shit in her post-match.
I admire you for admitting you were wrong, Andrew! I must say, for the past week it has really been winding me up a little when I see you posting that Lindsay will not beat Maria. Even after all these matches where Lindsay has shown her mental strength by coming from near-beaten to winner!
From what I hear, Lindsay played phenominal....but even if it was true that Maria was under par, Lindsay kept her mental strength together - which I feel is the main thing.
With this match, I feel that Lindsay has put a stamp on why she is number one and if she wins today then that is a firm authoritive stamp down....and a guantlet thrown down to the rest of the tops ten.
I do feel sorry for Maria though. The last year she has come along way, and has been somewhat unstoppable. When she has lost, it hasn't been convincingly. A result like this could either make or break a player and in this case, i certainly hope it doesn't ruin Maria. She really has something about the wy she plays (usually) and I hope it doesn't get lost too much because there is a danger of this event lingering in the back of her mind. Although I don't mind it lingering their too much when she plays Lindsay
Lindsay is a different player now than when she was in 2003 losing to kim several times. I won't be in to watch it tonight so I'll have to tape it. C'mon Lindsay and keep up the pace
