Sharapova has only played one Tier IV tournament.

She's only played four top 30 players since Wimbledon

SAN DIEGO___ 05 MYSKINA, ANASTASIA ___ 7-5 6-2
MONTREAL____ 14 ZVONAREVA, VERA ______ 4-6 6-4 6-4
US OPEN_____ 29 PIERCE, MARY _________ 4-6 6-2 6-3
BEIJING_____ 05 KUZNETSOVA, SVETLANA _ 6-2 6-2

You'd expect her to lose to Myskina or Kuznetsova. And Mary Pierce is a multiple GS champ, so if she has a real good day, anything can happen. The Zvonareva is a little surprising. But losing to Mashona Washington at New Haven is an outlier.

NEW HAVEN___ 81 WASHINGTON, MASHONA __ 6-3 2-6 6-2

Zvonareva was surprising, but Pierce wasn't...

Volcana, just stick to posting stats.

Zvonareva was surprising, but Pierce wasn't...Like I said, 'Mary Pierce is a multiple GS champ, so if she has a real good day, anything can happen.'Volcana, just stick to posting stats.That'll be the day. But if you can do anything about what I post, feel free.Why? :confused:Sharapova was the higher ranked player and the Wimbledon champion. Zvonareva has never won anything bigger than a Tier III. Sharapova's only loss between Wimbledon and this one was to Myskina, who was a higher ranked player and the French Open champ, as well as having at least one other Tier I title. On paper, Sharapova should beat Zvonareva. She's a more accomplished player and was only a month off winning her first GS.

There's a reason Vera is ranked about 10, and Pierce is ranked about 30, dear. Granted, Mary is quite often better than her ranking... but, her best days are long behind her.

Sharapova was the higher ranked player and the Wimbledon champion. Zvonareva has never won anything bigger than a Tier III.One of her Tier III titles included a hardcourt SF win over Sharapova.

In the previous tournament (San Diego), Vera defeated the higher-ranked Kuznetsova 6-2 6-3, and had numerous MPs against the higher-ranked Myskina. Therefore, I think that Vera was in better hardcourt form, and should have won this match.

"Plus she didn't beat a single seeded player in her last two tournaments" simply because those seeded players lost before they had a chance to play Sharapova.
