Disastrous second set costs Sharapova s-final berth

Maria Sharapova.
Agnieszka Radwanska.

She knew exactly what she had to do. Beat Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets and Maria Sharapova would have progressed to the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global and kept alive her hopes of ending the year as the world No. 1.

The 27-year-old Russian, who lost to Caroline Wozniacki and Petra Kvitova in her first two matches in the White Group, looked on the way to achieving her first objective yesterday, reported Haiqal Sari.

Having won the first set 7-5, Sharapova was leading 5-1 in the second, but somehow allowed Radwanska to snatch the set 7-6.

It meant that the Russian was out of the tournament even before the end of the match.

Despite the exit, she said the year had been a success and she would be concentrating more on the Grand Slams next season.
