Five time Grand Slam Champion, Maria Sharapova made a victorious return from injury by beating Jennifer Brady 6-1,4-6,6-0 at Stanford’s Bank of the West Classic in California, USA.

Sharapova, who returned to tennis action in April after serving a 15-month doping ban, had been out with a thigh problem since 16 May.

The 30-year-old, given a wildcard to play in the United States for the first time since March 2015, was given a testing time in the first round.

“I feel like I just want to hug everyone and say thank you,” said Sharapova, ranked 171st in the world. It’s my first match in the States in a really long time, and it’s the closest thing to home for me.”

She further aded: “I feel like I face a lot of things, not competing for a long time, an opponent who’s able to play some great tennis. I feel like I’m playing catch-up against everyone who’s had a head start.

All that matters is that I keep playing. As long as I’m the one winning the last point, I get to play another match, and another.

The more I play, the better I’ll do. That’s the goal.”
