Maria Sharapova moving on at Bank of West Classic tournament

Maria Sharapova back on focus.

Maria Sharapova with her power shot again.

Maria Sharapova has moved on to the semi-finals of the Bank of West Classic tournament and she had a marathon game of 2 hours and 47 minutes with fellow Russsian Elena Dementieva before doing so. It was also at this match I felt that Maria Sharapova is back on something. She has shown some of her best moves and probably the determination to win and more importantly the focus in the game.

It is not that she is not good but sometimes it seems she is just not that focus. She has managed to outlast the Elena the second seeded of the game at this match and shown her focus despite the longer hours of game than usual. It was a good match both had played well. 

Bartoli the defending champion had lost to Eighth-seeded Victoria Azarenka and top seeded Samantha Stosur continued to advance after wining 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 at the game.
