[30] Carla Suarez Navarro -24- (ESP) def [22] Maria Sharapova -22- (RUS) | 64 63

Wow. That was ugly. Happy 30th birthday to Carla Suarez Navarro, who survived an error-packed 4th-Rounder against 2006 US Open Champion Maria Sharapova on Monday night.

How bad was it? Sharapova ended the night with 38 unforced errors and 8 double faults. Seriously. Carla won the match with 20 unforced errors and 3 double faults. Tough one to watch. The colorful match recap below is pretty revealing.

Carla will have to clean up her act in the Quarterfinals, where she’ll face last year’s Finalist Madison Keys. She and Madison have met three times, most recently in Rio’s Olympic Games 2-summers-back. All of their matches have gone the distance. Carla has yet to win one.
