It's really sad to see Williams like that. Sluggish movement, terrible footwork, no defense skills what-so-ever. On the other hand, Sharapova can run circles around her now. Williams still has some powerful and precise strokes if, by chance, she finds herself in the right spot to attack the ball, but that won't skin a cat nowadays ...

Congratulations to Sharapova to keep her concentration, she showed glimpses of great tennis, but she didn't have the opponent to really shine.
