Maria storms into Quarterfinal

Maria Sharapova ended the historic run of Indian teenager Sania Mirza at the U.S. Open on Sunday with a comprehensive 6-2 6-1 victory.

Mirza, the first Indian woman to reach the fourth round of a grand slam tournament, traded crunching groundstrokes with the Russian world number two but was gradually overpowered. Maria Sharapova broke Mirza to lead 4-2 in the first set and then fended off three break points in the next game to build a commanding lead over the world number 42. "I'm playing pretty well, but it is going to get tougher and tougher," said Maria. This marks Maria Sharapova's first trip to the U.S. Open quarters in her third appearance here. The 2004 Wimbledon champ will meet her countrywoman Nadia Petrova in the quarterfinals.
