Sharapova makes it seven wins in a row over Stosur.

Samantha Stosur took a 6-4, 6-1 loss to revitalised Maria Sharapova on Monday to exit in the fourth round of the ATP and WTA Miami Masters. The Australian who lost the French Open final last year to Francesca Schiavone suffered with five double-faults and no aces in a contest lasting 81 minutes. US-based Russian Sharapova refused to give Stosur an early birthday present as the Australian, who turns 27 on Wednesday, was broken five times. Stosur’s loss left her short of her performances at the last two editions at Crandon Park, where she reached the quarter-finals. This is the first time that the Russian player has competed in the main draw of the Miami tournament since 2007, and she will play No. 26 seed Alexandra Dulgheru in the quarter-finals.

Two-time Miami finalist Sharapova saved three of the four break points she faced as clouds gathered over the stadium prior to possible forecast rain. Sharapova produced her best result so far this year at Indian Wells this month as she played her first semi-final since last August. The Russian who owns three Grand Slam titles improved to 20-20 against Top five players, and broke a loss streak against the elite after going down in her last six against top players.
