That match was quite good actually, from Mariya. especially second set. But Bychkova truly is a great defender, and as Mariya was not hitting as hard as usual, she could not end the points.
But the match vs Lisicki was worse, Mariya almost hitting no ball, especially in first set. But the reason is she was totally exhausted, she had worked a lot the fitness and felt the aftermath. She'll be back strong I hope.
