'Fresh' Sharapova revels in comeback win against Babos

'Fresh' Sharapova revels in comeback win against Babos

"I think with the way that I played on Monday night, I don't think there are any more questions", said the 30-year-old, when pushed about whether her spot in the tournament was justified.

If Sharapova continues to play like she has in her first two matches, then there are not many players in the field capable of stopping her.

In other first round matches, No. 8 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russian Federation defeated Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (2), No. 10 seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland beat Petra Martic of Croatia 6-4, 7-6 (3), and No. 20 seed Coco Vandeweghe from the United States beat fellow American Alison Riske 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Sharapova, who tested positive for the banned blood booster meldonium at last year's Australian Open, improved to 7-0 in her all-time rivalry with Halep, extending her mastery over the 25-year-old Romanian.

"Finding that balance is hard".

"Today I knew I wanted to get it done and I did". It wasn't my best tennis.

"It was a scrappy match but every time I step on the court here it's a special day", said the five-time major victor.

Two years after suffering a fall inside a locker room, the woes of Eugenie Bouchard continued after she went down to Evgeniya Rodina on Arthur Ashe Stadium; however, fourth seed Elina Svitolina and recent CT champion Daria Gavrilova advanced in contrasting circumstances.

"I definitely have to value the feeling that I have now".

"This girl has a lot of grit and she's not going anywhere", Sharapova told the crowd in an on-court interview.

"In the second set, I felt physically fresh and I used that as confidence. I'm really excited. These are the moments you work for".

The biggest upset in the women's draw on Wednesday came from Ekaterina Makarova a 6-2, 6-7, 6-1 victor over fifth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki.

Sky Bet's 7/2 favourite Garbine Muguruza did not begin her match against Duan Ying-ying until gone 10pm local time, such was the packed nature of the schedule follow Tuesday's rain.

But Sharapova is here, and she does not appear ready to be an easy out.

Sharapova won only 5 of 22 break points in the match while Halep won 4 of 10 and produced only 15 winners against 14 unforced errors.

Williams, the No. 9 seed, plays Oceane Dodin of France at night.

The Russian was handed a wildcard to enter the tournament after serving a 15-month doping suspension.

Fifth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark and 11th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia were among the upset victims in evening matches.

It was a terrible draw for Wozniacki against the in-form Russian, who looked like she might have blown her chance when she failed to serve out the match in the second set.
