Big win for Sharpie :eek:h:

Riske really blew it in that second set.

Yeah, I wonder what Sharpie was saying at the net too.

Decent match from Maria, her serve ranged from great and almost clutch at times but then she'd throw in a double or 2 out of nowhere. She was also decent from the ground but still inconsistent.
Riske didn't play her best by any means but fought hard in the second set.
I love both of them so I was gonna be happy either way.

Sharapova deserves to win this match.
Her defense was great against Riske's tricky, powerless shots.
She got to some of wide serves and put Riske in trouble right away returning them with bonus.
She couldn't serve well towards the end. But it would have been unfair had she been dragged into a 3rd set to lose. Her serve was deteriorating visibly.
Riske's pushing game had to go home. Very annoying. It's a great day every time a pusher is knocked out.
Well done, Siberian Queen.

Had a mp on her serve at 6-5 and flubbed, but it was good that she won on her own serve in the TB.

Right now Sharapova needs confidence far more than Riske. This match could help.

It might have been about that small altercation during the 1st set when Maria told Riske to wait before serving, and Riske started shouting to the umpire about it.

Scrapped through this nail bitter fight. But SECOND SERVE ACES... wig snatched.

She needs to work on her forehand down the line....

If Sharpova keeps playing these nail-biting matches in the early rounds I'm going to have to pick up a meldonium prescription from where she left it for my own heart's sake!
