I just watched an absolutely outstanding first round match in the US Open tonight between Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep.
Both players could have made it far in this tournament.
But Maria Sharapova’s power took over. She should have probably one on two sets if she won more break points.
I am really happy that Maria Sharapova is back in women’s tennis. It’s strange how the doping rules change.
And just an unbelievably tough draw for #2 ranked Simona Halep. She has had a wonderful year and she gets to play a 5 time grand slam champion who she is now 0-7 against.
Terrific match, nice treat for the first Monday. It’s a very tough draw for Halep that it wasn’t later in the tournament.
