Maria Sharapova continues with her strong serves and managed to win through to the next round after defeating Christina McHale 6-2, 6-1. The young America opponent was pretty determined to hold on to her lead but later on Maria Sharapova  overtook the score and she just moved on to win the game in an hour plus or so.

In the next match, Maria will be facing another American teenager but this time she is expecting to play with her some of best tennis as the teenager, Melanie Oudin had won the recent Rogers Cup Champion fourth seeded Elena Dementieva who had won Maria Sharapova in the final.

To be able to win the fourth seeded shows that this teenager may have what it takes. Maria Sharapova has been climbing up in rank to No. 28 and she has to continue to win to get back her title spot. For a player like her, I think she will be in top 10 soon.
