this is part of what Sharapova said during her press conference.

"She had another great serving day against me - I don't think I even had a break point," Sharapova said. "Maybe it was partly me not doing enough on the returns and partly she was serving well - a few moments when it was 30-all or 15-all, I didn't get a good return in. But that's one of the reasons she's such a great champion and has had a tremendous amount of success in her career.



"But yeah, I've got to keep moving forward. I'm proud of my year. I'm proud of my consistency. I'm proud I'm moving in the right direction in terms of improving my game and where I see it. I've accomplished a lot of things this year I really wanted, and wanted to get back in my career. A lot of great memories. Some difficult ones, but a lot of really positive thoughts moving into next year."
