Brace yourself for a BLOCKBUSTER FINAL when American Serena Williams enters into a duel with Maria Sharapova in the finals of the Sony Open, a mandatory premier event on the WTA Tour. Both the players come into this match with dominating victories in their respective semifinal matches, showing how confident the two are about their game. The two are possibly the strongest women on tour and not many players can match them in terms of power on the ground strokes.
Starting the year with a Title in Brisbane, Serena comes into this tournament reclaiming the No.1 ranking along with a 12-2 record. Gunning to win a record setting 6th Sony Open Title, Serena has already overtaken Steffi Graff for maximum number of match wins here (60). With blazing serves and some thunderous forehands, the American comes into this match after dismantling Pole Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets, smacking an astounding 40 winners in the match along with 12 aces.
With the strength she possesses, Serena is probably the only player on tour who can overpower anyone on any given day. Having already won 47 career WTA Tour Titles, Serena would be looking to extend the gap at the top and sit there without any threat for some time. The only backdrop in Williams’ game is her uncanny knack of taking more pressure than the occasion requires, resulting in a dip in form and some jittery moments.
With semifinal stints at the Australian Open and the Qatar Open, Sharapova opened her title account for this year as recent at last week at the BNP Paribas Open, defeating Caroline Wozniacki to lift her 28th career title. With a 14-2 win-loss record coming into this event, Sharapova has lost in the finals of this event for the last two years running and would be looking to finally lift this title for the first time.
Her previous round 6-2, 6-1 victory over Jelena Jankovic in devastative fashion showed that she has become stronger as the tournament has gone deeper and has certainly made the finals more interesting. With a big serve and some exquisite shot making skills, the Russian would be looking to become just the third female to accomplish the Indian Wells-Miami Double. But she needs to focus on her serves as it is one aspect that really pulls her game down.
The two have met 13 times before with the American way ahead of the Russian in their head-to-head matches at 11-2, winning the last 10 encounters. Things have not looked good for Sharapova against Williams as she has managed winning just 2 sets in all those 10 defeats.
