MOSCOW, January 25 /TASS/. Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova has a good chance to win her Australian Open quarterfinal vs. Serena Williams (USA) who, however, is considered to be the favorite, Honoured Coach of Russia Vladimir Kamelzon told TASS on Monday.

Sharapova and Serena Williams will meet each other in Melbourne on the night to January 26.

"In order to defeat Williams, Sharapova will need to use and benefit from her rival’s errors. If Maria does not do that, her chances to win will be next to nil. There is no doubt that today Serena Williams is number one in women’s tennis. But I repeat that it is within Sharapova’s power to win the quarterfinal match. I wish that Maria could win. She has everything for it. But I am a professional. That is why I am betting on the American 52 to 49," Kamelzon said.

"Sharapova has a chance to take it out for 10 years and decrease her lag in personal meetings (vs. Serena Williams). Maria has good chances to win tonight. She will be able to take the upper hand if she keeps her serve and imposes her manner of game on the rival during rallies," Kamelzon added.

Sharapova’s rivals in the semis, if she wins, will be the winner of a match between Agnieszka Radwanska (Poland) and Carla Suarez Navarro (Spain).

Sharapova and Williams have met each other twenty times (18-2 in Serena’s favour). The two met twice at the Australian Open - in 2007 and 2015. Serena Williams won both matches.
