WTA Sony Open Tennis Indian Wells seems so far away. Now we are in Miami and it's time to let the music change. Two of last week's semi-finalists in Indian Wells lost on Sunday in the third round of the Sony Open in Miami.
Both Angelique Kerber and Maria Kirilenko weren't able to keep the momentum on and lost today in straight sets. No.6 seed Kerber, who lost to Wozniacki in Indian Wells semi-final, was dominated by her opponent today. Sorana Cirstea is a player that you can never count out.
If in a good day the Romanian can produce great upsets. As Kerber seemed unable to find the court with her shots, Cirstea took control of the game and played better and better not losing a single game in the second set and taking the win 6-4 6-0.
Next for the Romanian will be returning Jelena Jankovic, who ousted 11th seed Nadia Petrova in two sets 7-6(7) 6-4. Just like Angelique Kerber, Maria Kirilenko couldn't follow her Semi-final run in Indian Wells with a good perfomance in Miami.
The Russian lost today to No.21 seed Klara Zakopalova 6-2 7-6(4). Too many unforced errors for Maria, who couldn't repeat her 2012 result, when she reached the fourth round at the Sony Open. Last week's queen, on the other hand, is not willing to let her good form go.
Maria Sharapova, after her title in Indian Wells, is on a roll in Miami as well. Today the World No.2 Russian, who has found back her serve, dominated in two sets compatriot and No.29 seed Elena Vesnina, winning 6-4 6-2. Waiting for Maria in the next round will be Klara Zakopalova. Who will stop Sharapova in Miami?
