Maria Sharapova upsets world No. 2 Simona Halep


Former World No 1 Maria Sharapova made a triumphant return to Grand Slam competition after a 15-month doping ban, outlasting second-ranked Simona Halep 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 at the US Open on Monday.

The 30-year-old Russian, who had only one hard-court tuneup match due to a nagging forearm injury, swatted 60 winners with 64 unforced errors, setting the tempo and baffling Halep at times in a tension-packed thriller at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
