Sharapova bows out, still comes away a victor at US Open

Sharapova bows out, still comes away a victor at US Open

Russian Federation superstar Maria Sharapova was hardly tested before rolling into last 16 with a convincing win against American teenager Sofia Kenin while former champion Marin Cilic of Croatia was knocked out from the US Open on Friday.

Fifth seeded Caroline Wozniacki criticised US Open organisers for putting her on an outside court in her second round loss while Sharapova soaked up the applause on Arthur Ashe.

Latvian 16th seed Anastasija Sevastova rallied to eliminate former world number one Sharapova 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 and book a quarter-final berth against American Sloane Stephens, who ousted Germany's Julia Goerges 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. "I had to stay pumped up and run and make her work for every point".

The Russian, who was playing in her first Grand Slam following a 15-month doping suspension, won the first set but could not maintain the momentum and lost the match 5-7 6-4 6-2.

Wozniacki, the No. 5 seed, said she thought that was a poor example following her second-round defeat Wednesday in a match that was scheduled for one outside court and eventually moved to another late in the day.

South Korean trade officials couldn't be reached by phone for comment Sunday. South Korea has been accused of dumping and subsidizing steel products.

But Muguruza had champion written all over her, as well as world No1: It was a tall task between two 6ft power players, Kvitova the leftie, Muguruza the rightie.

Maria Sharapova is playing in her first Grand Slam since the 2016 Australian Open, and things couldn't be going better.

"She's feisty. I know I have to come out, play well, have you all [the crowd] behind me and get a win."

"I think it is disrespectful to other players and the WTA", Wozniacki said in March.

The stand-out memory from Sharapova's run in NY will be her first-round victory over second seed Simona Halep, where she sustained a remarkable level for someone who has played so little competitive tennis.

She described it as 'the single most important step we can take to prevent a cliff-edge for people and businesses'. Davis said the story was "nonsense. completely wrong" and that the United Kingdom position was not yet settled.

NEW YORK-Well, they won't have to worry about Maria Sharapova hogging centre court, and centre stage, anymore.

On Sunday, she will face Latvian 16th seed Anatasija Sevastova for a spot in the quarter-finals. Third-seeded Muguruza, this year's Wimbledon Champion, defeated 31st-seeded Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1. She took another three sets to knock over Timea Babos in the second round, but one would think she will have no such problems against the 18-year-old Kenin. A win would put Stephens, who was out for 10 months after foot surgery, into her first US Open quarterfinal.

The Spaniard's effort to level the match cost her, however, and Williams played with more accuracy in the decider as Suarez Navarro grew frustrated before capitulating. "I did my best and I can be proud of that". So I knew I had to be ready. She got off to a good start, accepting a wild card into Stuttgart and belting her way to the semifinals. - I think that's unacceptable.

"It's been a really great ride", Sharapova said. "If she hits you off the court, then you say, 'Congratulations.' [But] when they're hitting, they're also making mistakes".

There was a chance for the streak of breaks to continue on Sharapova's serve but she denied Kenin, albeit unconvincingly, to grab a 4-1 lead. I just want to play matches.

If you're into entropy-and willing to learn a few names-then this year's U.S. Open is worth your time.
