I don't think sharapova has been particularly impressive this clay season, getting run close by safarova, ivanovic, kerber. Destroyed by Serena in Madrid. Would much rather be in her half.
Li and possibly Stosur would be tough qf matches but ones where I'd still back Vika. Everyone else Vika should deal with handily on her Rome form.
