Nice fight but Sharapova hit two DFs down *3-4 in the TB which sealed the deal. Entertaining third set.

Strong start and good fight from Maria but bitch can't serve to save her life. So many blown chances. Brady wasn't even playing good, just serving better than Maria.

Being a Sharapova fan is tough but we get back up and try again.

She better get a WC for another event because I don't think AO is gonna want to waste a WC on her if she ain't gonna perform.

So she's fully healed and completely healthy according to Piatti but loses her first match to Jennifer Brady looooooooooool. Great start to "attacking 2020" like he was bragging about. ?

She should focus her tennis career on appearance fees from Tiebreak Tens as that's all the steam she seems to mustet

I am sad it's come to this :(

Sigh. Even after a somewhat fast start I should’ve known better than to think she’d win this when she posted a pic on Instagram 3 days ago of her in a hospital bed with a virus. She looked even more lethargic and slow than usual and almost a bit pale after the longer rallies.

Brady played a great second set, third set was patchy but Maria’s cluster DF’s along with Brady finding her forehand enough times just made a little difference in the end. Maria looked absolutely gassed by the end of that one, I hope whatever she has is minor and she gets herself 100% for the AO.

Close match lasting over 2 hours ... hopefully no injury next.

Only saw the tiebreak. Sharapova's waiting time for the serve has gone to Nadalesque lengths. Consecutive DF's and a flopped volley to end it.

No idea how Brady needed over two hours for this.

Piatti said she was fully healed. Don't even go there with the health issues excuse lol.

Wasn't this renewed Sharapova supposed to beat Serena 6-0 6-0 as you stated ??

ROFLMAO ? ? ?

It´s sad for Sharapova but she should consider, either changing her brainless power game or retiring soon. I really felt sorry for her in the end with those DFs

Why do nose-strip wearing, double-faulting, arm-massaging, part-time tennis players think they can just waltz in, and beat younger, fresher full-time players with match practice as if they are in their glory days of yesteryear?

Well done Brady.
Did you even watch the match? Sharapova had it. Then she didn't. It's tennis. Brady deserved to win. She won three matches to get here but Sharapova was present tonight, she just couldn't come up with a good serve when she needed it. For most of the match, she had Brady on the run and was hitting very well. Serve was ok to start but started going away in set two.
