Maria Sharapova is definitely playing at her very best. The Russian beauty has conceded just 5 games in the first 2 matches to be the hot favorite for the title.
The match against Suarez Navarro was one way traffic with Maria being all over the show from the very beginning to win 6-1 6-3 in just 68 minutes. Maria scored 62 poinst vs. Carla’s 36 balsting 24 winners. Match Stats.
Maria lost to Carla in Montreal last year, so she was a bit worried “We went back and forth with our victories in 2014 so I’m always a little bit aware of girls that I lose to. I certainly know that she’s capable of playing really well, though. She plays defense great and makes you hit a lot of balls. Especially on a slower court like here, you just don’t want to give her that much time to play her game. I thought I did a good job of that today.
Maybe I made a little too many unforced errors in the beginning, but I finished strong.”
Next vs. Svitolina
