A day after world No. 1 Serena Williams suffered one of the most horrifying losses of her career at the WTA Finals, second ranked Maria Sharapova was also not that much enhanced. Maria Sharapova was expectating to reach the semi final of the tournament in Singapore by overhauling Williams as the year end No. 1 are following a 6-3 6-2 defeat to Petra Kvitova this Thursday. But world No.1 Williams bounced back in Thursday’s last match by severing an out of sorts Eugenie Bouchard 6-1 6-1.
Kvitova eminently beat Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2011 to open her grand slam record but the Czech had lost five in a line to the U.S.based Russian. Sharapova hit six double faults and was wrecked five times as she fell to 0-2 in the White Group. Never one for justification, she declines to culpability the result on exhaustion two days after Caroline Wozniacki outlasted her in a exhausting three hour contest. Sharapova told that she is not tired and she is happy to be here. She further added that she is happy to be part of the event. According to her it is simple to sit there and say that she is tired but that’s not the way she feels or the way that she prefers to speak.
Sharapova who succeeded her lone year-end label 10 years ago must now beat the 1-1 Radwanska on Friday to have any prospect of advancing. But even a triumph won’t assure a spot in the semi-finals. For Sharapova to become the year-end No. 1, she now has to triumph in the tournament and anticipate that Williams does not clear the final. Sharapova is very optimistic about her future match as she said that she still have a match in front of her and she will do her best to conclude it on a extremely good note.
That is the only thing she can ask of herself. Simona Halep routed Williams 6-0 6-2 in the Red Group on Wednesday, bounding the 18 time grand slam champion to say she was embarrassed with her feat. For more latest sports news do visit this space daily.
