Sharapova vs Sevastova
In the 1st round of Sharapova without any problems, Tatiana Maria was overcome: 6-1,6-4. The first game of the Russian woman played flawlessly, and in the second set, mistakes flashed, but Masha at the right time gathered, and did not allow the match to drag on three sets, although inferior with the break with a score of 1-3.
But Sevastova won a strong-willed victory over Lepchenko: 3-6,6-3,6-2. The American fought on an equal footing, but there was not enough strength for the third game. Sevastova in front of the Australian Open played in two Australian tournaments: in Brisbane reached the semifinals, and in Sydney could not pass and the first round, losing to Cibulkova: 3-6, 1-6.
Anastasia and Maria met twice in September last year, and the matches were very stubborn and tense: the US Open was stronger than Sevastova (5-7,6-4,6-2), and Sharapova took revenge in Beijing: 7-6.5-7.7-6. It is difficult to imagine that the next meeting will go in a different scenario: the Russian woman is still far from the ideal form, so she can not achieve an easy victory, and she should not hope for permanent errors by Sharapova.
