Serena Williams thrashed Maria Sharapova
World number one tennis star Serena Williams sustained her decade-long domination against Maria Sharapova with a clinical 6-4 6-3 victory on March 27 to get into her ninth Sony Open final. The rematch of last year’s final created the same effect as Williams, a six-time champion on the Miami hard-courts, ran her winning band next to Sharapova to 15 matches, a dazzling run that stretches back to 2004. Sharapova and Williams, who have both attained a career grand slam and held the number one ranking, were likely to increase into one of the huge competitor in women’s tennis.
But it has not quite worked out that way with Williams winning 16-of-18 gatherings between the two. In Sharapova’s 16 failures, the Russian has only supervised to take two sets off the 17-times grand slam champion.
Sharapova said that, “Despite my results against her, I still look forward to playing against her because you learn so much from that type of level which she produces. There is no reason for me to have any pressure because of my results against her.
“She’s an incredible champion. That’s the reason she’s at the top. She’s accomplished a lot, her tennis speaks for itself and I have nothing to lose out there against her.”
