And she also had a game point even after it went to deuce. DFs and UFEs doomed her. Maria even had one last gasp at 3-5 getting to 0-30 on Serena. But Serena had entered GOAT mode and it over quickly after that.
you are so wrong with your analysis, Sharapova choked in both serving games after 3-2 . And i think after she lost second set she had nothing in her tank as well as she lost belief, while Serena as a predator smelled blood and just became even more furious seeing that opponent was "retreating"
