Both former champions of BNP Open met at the semi-finals. Maria Sharapova took the lead and won the match 6-4 0-1(r) after Ana Ivanovic could not continue due to her injury which she said that she started to feel in the first set of the match. At the second set she decided to stop the game as she could not push off and jump. Maria Sharapova will be facing Victoria Azarenka at the final which is like a repeat of the Australia Open this year where these two players pit against to win the championship. It was also since a long time where current top two players in the World are playing with each other at the final. Victoria Azarenka has been winning 22 games straight and Maria Sharapova has the opportunity to win back the player she lost the grand slam title to now. It all sounds like this is going to be a great final ahead to watch.
