My friend will be ecstatic with this news. A big fan of Sharapova for years now, she has been longing to see her idol in any Grand Slam tennis championships. It seems that for this year, Maria Sharapova will have that chance. I don't know much about her opponent (Azarenka) though but as what I've seen from the game she played against Australian Open defending champion Kim Clijsters, the hardworking Victoria Azarenka of Belarus is a force to reckon with. Aside from the fact that she's also a noisy player like Maria Sharapova. It seems that it's going to be a finals with a lot of grunting and shrieking, after all.
It's saddening to see Kim Clijsters go though.
