- - SHARAPOVA 6-2 6-1 - GAME SET AND MATCH! Shuai has managed to hold one of her games but Maria isn't letting up and, with the Chinese serving to stay in the match, Maria has two match points. Taken with a fine return that Peng can't make anything of. Sharapova faces Zakopalova next, having dropped just five games so far in three matches. Women's draw.
- - SHARAPOVA 6-2 3-0 - DOUBLE BREAK! Quicker than even I'd anticipated. The Chinese is nowhere near the big lass here. This is on British Eurosport now, by the way, Gasquet-Haas on Eurosport 2. And all matches on the Player!
- - SHARAPOVA 6-2 1-0 - BREAK! This could be a quickie, if you pardon the terminology. Maria moving well and firing in some tasty winners from all angles.
- - SHARAPOVA 6-2 - SET! Maria closes out the set with an imperious love hold. Can't see a way back into this for Shuai.
- - SHARAPOVA 5-2 - BREAK! Another for Maria as she blasts the Chinese away. With Serena a goner and Azarenka flaky on clay I can really see a Slam for the Russian.
- - SHARAPOVA 3-1 - BREAK! Shuai stops the rot with some very clinical returning as she breaks the Russian. Can she hold?
- - SHARAPOVA 3-0 - BREAK! The Russian is all over the Chinese here as she breaks again. Too much power.
- - SHARAPOVA 1-0 - BREAK! This big-hitting match gets underway and Maria starts in style with a break against the Chinese!
