US Open 2017: Maria Sharapova stuns Simona Halep on Grand Slam return

Maria Sharapova made a dramatic return to Grand Slam action by knocking out world number two Simona Halep at the US Open.

The Russian won 6-4 4-6 6-3 in front of a sell-out night session crowd of almost 24,000 people in New York.

Sharapova, 30, was playing her first Grand Slam match since serving a 15-month doping suspension.

The 2006 champion and former world number one needed a wildcard to enter the main draw as she is ranked 146th.
