Sharapova always loses when the two meet since her maiden win over Serena years back at Wimbledon in 2004. In fact there is some sort of magic surrounding the America, a spell that the Russian finds to strong to break and melts when she plays the world no.1.
Sharapova's easy defeat at the hands of Serena shows her weakness to over awe the American and allowing her to reach the finals and perhaps win the title to take her Grand Slam total to 21.
