Shara­pova out­lasts Wozniacki in Sony Eric­s­son semi­fi­nal

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

KEY BIS­CAYNE, FLA. | Maria Shara­pova ben­e­fited from a chair um­pire’s dis­puted over­rule on the final point Thurs­day and edged Caro­line Wozniacki 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 in the semi­fi­nals at the Sony Eric­s­son Open.

At 40-30 in the final game, Shara­pova hit a sec­ond serve that the lines­man called long, which would have been a dou­ble-fault, but the um­pire im­me­di­ately reversed the rul­ing and or­dered the point re­played. The call couldn’t be re­viewed be­cause Wozniacki had no chal­lenges left, although TV re­plays showed the um­pire was cor­rect to over­rule.
