Sharapova d. Kuznetsova 6-4 1-6 6-2
I was always on to a winner with this one.
As with Sod, I never root against Sveta for anyone. It’s just not the done thing round these ‘ere parts.
That is, unless she’s playing a resurgent Masha – now firmly part of that USO conversation everyone’s having -- and might (like Nalbandian) benefit from the down time.
Know what I’d benefit from? A live Cincy stream.
So far I’ve missed Ana over Vika, Masha over Sveta and, I fear, Kimmie over Dina.
