Awesome second serve! Especially after that late call!

Sharapova is no longer the cow on ice, it seems.

Sharapova should have this now with 3 mp. Her second serve really saved her this match.

Pure clutch from Maria somehow staying there and saving all those bps. Well done.

Now we have to watch Sharapova get destroyed by Azarenka again. So sad to see stuff like this. I still think Kvitova will retire as the greatest player of all time.

When she loses against the 'cow on ice' on Kvitova's second favourite surface? Uh, no.

Well done Maria - fantastic performances this week, lets see if she can change the drubbings from Azarenka!

Sharapova has improved her movement on clay. She is a much better clay court player than she was a couple of years ago.

Yep, that is when Maria is great to watch, when she can clutch serve like she did today. Beautiful. Now I just hope she can defeat Azarenka tomorrow(whom I can't stand) and turn the tide in that match-up but somehow I am not feeling confident based on their past few meetings. :(

I hope Sharapova plays that well.against Azarenka and doesn't get steamrolled. She played clutch tooth and nail tennis in Australia to beat Kvitova and then imploded in the final. I would at least like it to be competitive. Although I must say Sharapova is proving she deserves her rank..what is this 4 finals so far....or is it 5 on the year?

Yes, it will be her 4th final of the year tomorrow. Time for her to win one!

Up until this year it was only 5-3 Azarenka in the H2H. Now it's 10-3. Radwanska can beat heavy hitters like Bartoli, Li, Goerges, and Sharapova, but has no answer for Azarenka. She's beaten pushers like Jankovic, Zvonareva, and Wozniacki as well.

Radwanska really needs to beef up the 2nd serve. Her defense, as solid as it is, can only do so much against hitters in the zone. She doesn't intimidate folks, but she knows when to force the issue during the points.


Azarenka really cranked up her game this year, and the fact they always go deep only increases chances meeting often. Yes, cream puff serve is bad, especially on clay, her opponent can have a coffee break in between, lol, I did that once to a guy who was really slow serving

Kvitova plays right into Sharapova's hands with her erratic ball bashing game. Azarenka is a whole different matchup entirely. Maria isnt that good right now, she just keeps running into players without a brain who play into her strengths, and cant match her will to win. Once she runs into someone who doesnt make it so easy for her that her current level isnt really that high, and the glaring holes in her current game that still exist, is exposed.
