Sharapova Claims First Victory In US Open

MARIA SHARAPOVA is sitting pretty in pink in the third round of the US Open. You know, he's very dedicated. Sharapova is over it. They think of her as one of them. "I felt it while I was away". Bouchard dubbed Sharapova a "cheater" in one spring interview and leveled Sharapova, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, on court when they squared with each other in Madrid. I think that's important. And doubts. And skepticism over what exactly unfolded with her doping case.

Fair enough. These women are entitled to their opinions. The physio came and taped my wrist and I took a pill, like ibuprofen or whatever it was, whatever the doctor gave me.

A number of players will be on the court for a second straight day Thursday after nearly all of Tuesday's action was postponed by rain.

"I wish it was an American instead, selfishly, because it is a US tournament", she said.

She pleaded guilty to her crime and she has done her time. "I keep letting people down", he said afterward.

Amid all the talk of injured men's players and the hullabaloo over Maria Sharapova reappearing in a Grand Slam, you could be forgiven for having overlooked ninth-seeded Venus Williams lurking there in the U.S. Open draw.

It was a decision widely criticized with many insisting she should work her way back into the main draw and not be given a helping hand.

It was world number 59 Babos who stole ahead in the breaker, and she took it 7-4 thanks to two Sharapova errors after more than an hour on court. Sharapova didn't play the cleanest match in the second round, but she did win 51 percent of her return points and broke eight times.

"When the draw came out I knew what a hard matchup this would be, how much excitement was behind this matchup and the hype", she said. "But I'm also realistic".

It was quickly 4-1 for Sharapova in the second set and she held a break point there to allow her to go up 5-1 and serve for the victory. The 37-year-old hit 33 winners in the first match of day three's night session at Flushing Meadows. "I know obviously the unforced error count was a bit too high, especially at the end of that first set".

Sharapova needed no extra motivation back on the stage she loves best and set about pummelling the Halep serve.

Still she remains somewhat under the radar in these early rounds, even with her small chance of taking the No. 1 ranking from Karolina Pliskova at the end of the tournament.

"In the second set I felt physically fresh and that gave me confidence". "Going into the third, that was a good feeling to have".

This was the second victory of Sharapova's return to the Open.
