Re: Maria's best match on grass

In fact, it's a testament to how well she did most things in that match that she managed to win so comfortably in spite of giving away an average of 2 free points every service game.
I totally erased that match from my memory because of her awful serving performance!
I think that she displayed solid tennis in her match against Cibulkova too, but the match with Peng was probably her best!
