The Siberian shattered the dream of a disciple of Paul Lozano Spanish in 89 minutes, and the third time. The Italian, who left the game with protective strips on the right thigh, dropped serve five times, and gave the best of herself in the end, when he saved two match points, one with a superb left.
Although rallied from a 4-0 start, and saved two balls set in the first set Errani could not stop Maria to take him to the third time in 36 minutes.
In the second Maria broke Errani start and realized that he had no choice but to change his game, and go up from time to time to the network, to attempt what seemed impossible, but the service was not up to par and yielded to the powerful forehand from the Russian.
