Moments when Serena Williams is stoppable have been few and far between, especially in recent years, but the fact that the fighting and big-game Maria Sharapova couldn’t have found an answer to the American’s dominance in ten years and 15 successive matches still amazes me.
Anne Keothavong was live tweeting about the match and here’s the conclusion of the tennis pro:
Does anyone think Maria will ever beat Serena before they both hang up their rackets? Unless Serena is injured, I can’t see it happening

In today’s Sony Open Tennis semifinals, Sharapova headed to a good start, with a 4-1 lead in the first set and 2-0 in the second, but the top-ranked Williams erased them both for a 6-4 6-3 triumph and her ninth Miami final. It is her record number of times in one tournament final.
