Well, that wasn't bad at all.
Serena's serve was on, she stayed calm and collected so there's no much more anyone could have done really.
I'm very happy with this match not because she managed to win more games than their last two meeting combined but mainly because she didn't look afraid of Serena this time.
Well done on a very good performance, Maria.
Plus happy the last big match of the year was an actual match rather than a slaughter.
A very good finish to a very good year.
