    Sharapova to win, I think the only chance Wozniacki has is if Sharapova plays like she did against Errani, where he had over 40 ufes.

    Sharapova channelling Terror Fabulous in this match. She's totally intimidated Wozniacki. Unless she completely loses focus she's got this.

    Wild cheers from the crowd as Wozniacki trying to make a stand.

    That was a powerful performance from Sharapova who controlled the match from the first shot and wins easily 6-2, 6-2.

    Wozniacki tried to extend some of the points at the end but Maria simply wasn't having it.

    Delpo is just too strong with his FH.

    Rafa's form is dipping in this second set.

    Del Potro looking a little tired and unfocused since losing the break lead in the second set. Nadal's cleaned up his forehand and his backhand continues to look fantatic. Del Potro needs to make a push soon to stay in this.

    Yeah, Del Potro's a bit tired. Rafa's making him work super hard.

    Nadal's defending was just SICK today! If he can move/defend like this on hard-courts, and against Delpo's pace, this clay season just might be a marvel to watch.
    I only see Romanians.

    Indeed, Rafa's defending, specially in the third set with his sliding and so on makes it look like he might be back almost at 100%, at least mobility-wise.

    He's got things in the right order. First de-rust the movements, then de-rust the english!
