I actually think Makarova has the type of game that can give her some trouble....ish. We all know it's the counterpunchers who have a good mix of offence and defence who historically fare best against Maria, and Makarova to me seems to have that type of game. Maria should still win in straights obviously if she plays as well as she has been, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was her toughest match of the tournament so far.
