Sharapova is killing Danilidou

Danilidou had few chances in the firs 3 games but failed to capitalize on them,
She could be staring at 2 bagels or 2 bread sticks

After the 3rd game I left..

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Eleni's serve has been terrible all night She's had chances to win almost every game but can't capitalize...

To her credit, Sharapova has picked her game since the third game.She is making Danilidou move and it is visibly taking a toll

I think the second set will be closer now that Eleni has won a game.

I know it is too early, but if anyone was wondering where Sharapova's game is after her last withdrdrawal, I think she partially answered the question with a positive and fantastic performance in first set.

I agree. But if all the dueces games are won by the same person, that tells you about the mental toughness and match management.
And I think Maria's camp has to be happy with her instinct and reactions

Maria's on court behaviour is still to me!
Yes she's playing well
Yes she's motivated
Yes she's young
But come on, she's winning 6/1-2/0 and acting like an over-excited baby who wants an ice cream

That's just her way of keeping herself motivated. If it wins her matches then fine. I'd rather she win doing that than to lose holding it back.

how in anyway is that a Killing?

This is a very close match that is going Maria's way but in no way is it a killing.
