Ivanovic played solid throughout. Sharapova proved yet again her irrelevance inside the top 5.

Her ranking is disproportionate to her success, that's been established

well, she's relevant enough at least for all the WS trolls to create 125486 threads about her on the first page every day. That's a pretty good stat for irrelevant player to have, don't ya think?

Re: BOGOTA EXO: A.Ivanovic def. M.Sharapova 6-1 1-6 12-10

What does each fan base take away from this match?
Obviously Ana's fan must be happy that she recovered in the super TB.

For Maria fans, I guess they can also be satisfied that Maria seems positive about her own performance, calling it "baby steps".
Anyhow, Maria fans did not really know what to expect, so they have no choice but to go with Maria's self-assessment.

Well that first set by Maria was God awful, and it's understandable since she hasn't played a match in what, 5 months? She was in AngryComeBackPova mode after being breadsticked, and of course Ana wasn't going to win an easy match, even in an exho

The DFs are worrying, but she hit a lot of aces too. She hit some amazing winners and shiteous errors. All in all, an expected performance by someone who hasn't been on the court in a very long time.

I'm glad Maria was able to get out and do this. She'll get it together for January.

Two things.

1) This was an exho, I am not sure how much prepared Mary was for this; or if she had set a high marker for herself to reach.
2) The match started 4 hours late, Maria is an intensive person. With all that wait, she may have lost focus in the early going, the streaky Ana took full advantage of it.



I did not see the match so I am speculating based on the little bit I was able to read here.

Maria couldn't serve or find the court at all in the first set, so maybe it was a combination of the late start and the lack of match-play, but I'm leaning much more towards the latter. And I think Maria always goes into exhibitions with the intention of winning; I don't see her play too differently in terms of intensity during the games. Maybe in between the games and sets she has fun with the crowd and with her opponent, but during the actual match, she plays how she would anywhere. Unless it's getting really one-sided a la Woz last year and for the sake of the fans she takes it easy

What happened in the 2nd set?
Maria finding her game or Ana's level dropping or both?

Both. This is Ana after all, so choking at one point in a match is inevitable

Your comments in this thread are the only report I have been able to find about what happened in this match. Thanks....
