Wilson Blade 9

Maria SharapovaThree-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharpova started the 2010 season with a first-round loss to Maria Kirilenko at the Australian Open, but has now scored a very convincing victory at the International-level event called Regions Morgan Keegan Champs / Cellular South Cup.

Top-seeded Sharapova finished her second match of the season in just 51 minutes, losing only three points on her first serve and a total of two games to defeat world No.101 Shenay Perry 6-0 6-2 and reach the second round.

The Russian world No.15 is making her second appearance in Memphis. Six years ago she reached the semifinals at the tournament. (photo Mister E)


  1. great Mashika 🙂
    Anyhow, I am just feeling bit strange cause she is wearing the same outfit like some girls on the tour. It is not exactelly strange, but really unusual for her. I mean she looked better in Masha uniques.
    Besides, Marija dont u know if Masha´s shoes are for sale? Some european eshop ? 🙂 Thanks 🙂

  2. Great Mashika 🙂 I hope she will win here 🙂
    The only thing I find bit strange is her dresses. She is wearing the same outfit like some girls on the tour:/ It is not exactelly strange, but just really unusual for her. She looked better in Masha uniques I think.
    BTW, Marija, don´t U know if Masha trainers are for sale? Some european eshop? Thanks a lot 🙂

  3. u should sooooooo do a post about how nicole vaidisova won her first WTA match of the year, and first in a very LONG time! THAT WOULD BE GREAT

  4. hi marija….

    how are you…

    how’s china???

    elena just lost yesterday, retired…

    and vee got a revenge win against sabine…

    im very happy!!!

  5. LuLinQa, I couldn’t find them. :/ Her website is linking to the sites that sell her apparel, but I don’t see the exact trainers there.

    Myles, I will write about it, for sure! That’s really exciting news!

    Pat, I back from China. I had a spectacular time there, and I’m planning to come back.

    T, yes, I saw that one, actually I saw two versions of it, but I haven’t shared yet, cause I was waiting for some sort of confirmation. Now I’m thinking, I will feature them.

  6. Well interesting to see Sharapova play in Memphis
    this should be slam dunk contest for her to make
    to the final. I really don’t see any competition
    for her. I mean Bethanie mattek sands at one
    time was a good player in 2008 who made it far
    in Wimbledon in 2008. But its 2yrs later and she
    has fallen out of the top 100, and well there is
    Vania king, but I can’t possibly see her upsetting
    Masha, even though I like Vania. And then there
    is Oudin at the bottom half of the draw I guess
    she would be the favorite to make it to the final.
    But its funny how all the players who played
    last week in all the tournaments either have
    lost, or retired with injuries, so if she does
    make it that far, more power to Oudin and respect
    to her game!. May the best person win!

  7. LuLinQa, oh there are both the dresses that I mentioned I had seen. I will write a post about them, probably tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the link for the others. 🙂

    Kiaha, Oudin is winning against Lilia Osterloh. Meh, Vaidisova lost.
