Australian Open 2013: Sharapova demolishes Puchkova in first roundZeenews Sports Bureau

Melbourne: World No. 2, Maria Sharapova began her Australian Open campaign in style demolishing her opponent Olga Puchkova in 55 minutes on Monday, cruising to a 6-0, 6-0 win.

The Russian didn’t exhibit any signs of pain in her right shoulder that kept her out of the Brisbane International earlier this month.

"I didn`t want to focus on the fact I hadn`t played a lot of matches," Sharapova was quoted as saying by a news agency after the match.

Sharapova will meet Venus Williams in the third round provided their campaigns doesn’t suffer any setback,

Earlier, Venus needed just an hour for her opening 6-1, 6-0 win over Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan.

Sharapova had lost the final of the event to Victoria Azarenka here last year before going on to win the French Open.
