Sharapova advances again at US Open

Sharapova Claims First Victory In US Open

Sharapova insisted that she took the drug for years because of a magnesium deficiency and family history of diabetes.

"It's so incredible to be able to play Maria on Arthur Ashe, hard to describe how I feel right now", Kenin said by phone Wednesday night.

But even as Sharapova competes here, she remains the poster woman for Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" program. "It's a match, as we said, that you usually see towards the later stages of a tournament or a Grand Slam".

Federer has won both Grand Slams he's entered in 2017 (the Australian Open in January and Wimbledon in July) but has certainly not been immune to the wear and tear that has forced other top players such as Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Milos Raonic and Stan Wawrinka to either withdraw from the U.S. Open or shut down for the rest of the season. "Coming down from that and ending up on the winning side and knowing that there are many matches ahead of you, you just have to settle down".

The 30-year-old Russian became the first player into the third round where she will face Russian-born U.S. teen wildcard Sofia Kenin.

"I don't really know, to be honest", she said.

He also suggested he would follow through on previous threats to pull the USA out of the trade pact he called the "worst deal ever made".

"It's one of those matches you kind of want to forget about", said the 23-year-old Bouchard.

Venus Williams made short work of her second-round opponent at the US Open on Wednesday.

Russia's Daria Kasatkina has meanwhile beaten China's qualifier Wang Qiang 6-7 (7-9), 6-2, 6-3 in the first round of US Open and will next face Christina McHale, who has triumphed over 19-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Svitolina breezed through the first set before posting a 6-0, 6-7 (5), 6-3 victory over Siniakova, the world's 42nd-ranked player.

The victory seems to instill the faith in Sharapova that she is back to her best.

Sri Lanka vs India: Hosts win toss, elect to bat
Crowd trouble took the spotlight away from India's series win as disgruntled fans held up play for more than 30 minutes on Sunday. With 3-0 up and series in the bag, it remains to be seen if Kohli will make some changes for the remaining two ODIs.

She also had a sleeve on her right elbow to keep that arm warm, she said.

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.

After the final point, Sharapova dropped to her knees as a replay appeal showed what she already knew. Babos reacted with a loud yell.

The Russian, who had a strapping on her left forearm that has recently caused problems, was left awaiting an American, either wildcard Sofia Kenin, or qualifier Sachia Vickery.

On Wednesday, Sharapova bested Babos, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-1.

Silver for valiant Sindhu
Both the shuttlers played their heart out in the middle and exhibited some extraordinary skills of the game on the court. The Japanese took the benefit of Saina's tiredness as she used the whole court perfectly to take the game to 10-3.
