about the video
Maria Sharapova proved she will be someone to contend with for the U.S. Open tennis crown after the Russian wild card outlasted second seed Simona Halep 6-4 4-6 6-3 on Monday to get the year’s final grand slam off to an electrifying start. Still shaking off the rust from a 15-month doping ban and a string of nagging injuries, the 30-year-old Maria Sharapova needed all her skill, determination and two hours and 44 minutes to snatch victory in front of a packed Arthur Ashe stadium. The victory becomes the highlight of what has been a torturous comeback for the former world number one, who returned to tennis in April after being banned for testing positive for metabolic modulator meldonium at last year’s Australian Open.
