Maria Sharapova Blanks the World Number One Seed

It was a remarkable match. Maria Sharapova eliminated Justine Henin from the 2008 Australian Open. It was 6-4 and 6-0. The second set showed Ms Sharapova’s dominance in this evening match. Justin Henin did not play that badly. It is just that Maria Sharapova played that well. Rarely will Ms Henin be blanked in a set.

Maria Sharapova has a reputation of playing extremely well in evening matches. However, it would not matter what time of the day it was. She made a definitive statement that she has healed from her injuries. And she advances, against the world top seed player.
