Gritty Maria Sharapova Battles Back To Beat Timea Babos

  • Sharapova v Halep, Zverev, Cilic And Venus Monday On Day 1 At US Open

Sharapova finished with 12 aces and managed to overcome a whopping 19 unforced errors in the first set alone.

Timea Babos hits a backhand slice during her second-round match against Maria Sharapova at the 2017 U.S. Open.

Sharapova, who entered the US Open as a wildcard, will face American Sofia Kenin in the third round tomorrow and is a strong chance to capture her second US Open crown with a number of top seeds falling in the opening week.

Maria Sharapova is well used to the limelight - on and off court - but the stage lights seemed just that little bit brighter even for the five-time grand slam champion at the US Open earlier this week.

"But I felt fresh and I wanted to be the fittest player out there", she added.

Gear Fit2 Pro will begin shipping in the United States starting September 15 at a retail price of $199 (roughly Rs. 13,800). The Gear Sport touts a battery life of up to 4 days and it's available in a choice of blue or black in a 42.9 MM casing.

"If the Open wants to give Maria a wild card and they feel like it's best for the event, more power to them", he said.

Sharapova is now ranked 146th and had to rally after losing the first set against the 59th-ranked Babos.

Fourth seed Elina Svitolina (8/1) resumed her match against Katerina Siniakova after rain had suspended play in the second-set tie-break on Tuesday and eventually prevailed 6-0 6-7 (5/7) 6-3. As Sharapova put it after her win, "Behind all these Swarovski crystals and little black dresses, this girl has a lot of grit and she's not going anywhere".

These two women have, indeed, faced off with a Grand Slam title at stake: Sharapova beat Halep in the 2014 French Open final, part of what is now her 7-0 head-to-head record in the matchup.

She is branded and nothing Maria Sharapova does on the tennis court for the rest of her career will erase the scarlet letter "M" (for Meldonium, not Maria) that she wears on her custom-designed outfits.

The amount of water expected to hit Fort Bend County by late Tuesday could reach levels seen only about once ever 800 years. Mr Turner has inisisted that a mass evacuation of millions of people by auto was a greater risk than enduring the storm.

If the atmosphere inside the biggest arena in world tennis is usually more passionate at night matches, there was still no doubt who the NY public wanted to win when Sharapova faced Hungary's Timea Babos in the second round on Wednesday afternoon.

Heavy rainfall on Day 2 saw play outside Arthur Ashe Stadium either suspended or postponed, resulting in a massive backlog of first-round matches needing to be completed on Day 3 to get the schedule back on track.

"He had a most unbelievable year where he won basically everything", Coric said.

Canadian Eugenie Bouchard, who is suing the Unites States Tennis Association, lost on Ashe Stadium to Evgeniya Rodina of Russian Federation 7-6 (2), 6-1. "I think it would be quite obnoxious of me to come in here expecting I have a right to be in second week". 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. Said Ramos: "I can not repeat what he said you said".
