To me it only shows how badly Sharapova wanted to win that match, which is flattering for Venus. BTW Serena is not gonna be any more in a mission against sharapova cuz she beat Venus tonight, Serena is ALWAYS on a mission against Sharapova.
She is DRIVEN by Maria's success

Well done Mash

to all the diehard Vee fans. Most of them are pretty awesome. She fought well.
I smell indirect "shade" at Venus and/or Serena

I have never been impressed with anything about Sharapova's game, but I was extremely impressed tonight. She is playing very well. Playing like this, I'd like to see how she matches up against the other two members of the top 3.

Venus may or may not ever play her best again. Who knows. This certainly wasn't it though.

Keep doing this Maria.
Venus Maria's celebration did look a bit OTT but if anything it shows how much a win over Venus means even in days like this, when she's far from her best.

She looks stronger than last year. Impressive match from her, a few errors at the end but still. She obviously took the match very seriously and pulled through through with a strong performance, reason enough to celebrate, don't see any problem with that .

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

This match proved again that Venus (whom I predicted to lose early here and I was right ) is an overrated has-been and should retire and that Pova is an absolutely classless player.

Where's Sammy with his advertisement thread? This shitefest of a match should have been scheduled on Court 22.

This. Venus's serve is too nullified on this surface. It partly explains her track record at this event.

impressive result. i can see her winning a few more games off serena or vika if she keeps playing like this.

High level from Masha Onwards to the title!

Anyone who thought this result would be different needs their head examined.

it was nullified because of Maria's heavy powerful return shots.
Williams spent majority of the match defending, because she couldn't deal with the pace of Maria's strokes. I think Maria is hitting the ball bigger than ever before...dis AO is goona be good me thinks

Well done Maria
Didn't see the match but by all it accounts it sounds like she more than brought it tonight.

Vee
Clearly a nightmare day at the office but I'm glad there was some fight at the end.
Hopefully some good runs in Paris and Florianopolis will boost the ranking and restore some confidence.
