Nice to watch Masha winning this match.
Beautifull tennis of Masha Sharapova.
WHY DID MASHA LOSE THIS MATCH?
Let's watch the important parts of the match:
From this match we can see that Vika controlled all the balls and sets. She made Masha to run a lot after her balls. She imposed her game to Masha.
Even if Masha plays a good tennis, it is a good lesson for Masha, she should improve her tennis with the help of her team and coach. Intelligent work and physical conditions need to be increased !!!! Errors should be corrected. There is no other solution. For example we have to answer to this question: Why did Vika control most of the balls in this match?
Azarenka has a french coach Sam Sumyk a Breton (from north of France), the one who trained Zvonareva before.
But since she decided to take up with coach Sam Sumyk (who used to work with Vera Zvonareva) at the end of 2009, she began to progress. Half way through 2010, her management team at Lagardère - which includes agent John Tobias, her manager, and the former American player Meilen Tu (who is married to Sumyk - convinced her that it was time to being so mistrustful of outsiders and to let her vibrant off court personality flourish. She was no longer as standoffish, and began to engage the media and other members of the tennis industry. Right around the same time, she began to put the pieces together in her game.
Any defeat is a lesson for other matches.
