Sharapova takes revenge on Sevastova in Beijing

Sharapova takes revenge on Sevastova in Beijing

Undated, Sept 30 (Reuters) Former world number one Maria Sharapova avenged her U.S. Open loss to Anastasija Sevastova with a 7-6(3) 5-7 7-6(7) victory over the Latvian in the China Open first round on Saturday. The 30-year-old Russian, returning to court for the first time since her fourth-round exit at Flushing Meadows, came back from a break down three times before clinching the first set 7-3 in the tiebreak. Despite dropping her serve in the opening game of the second, Sevastova, seeded 16th, rallied back to force a decider. Sharapova, who had never lost a third-set tiebreak, needed a brave forehand winner at 6-5 before sealing a second-round spot in just over three hours. She will take on the winner between American qualifier Jennifer Brady and Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the second round. Earlier in the day, second seed Simona Halep snapped her three-match losing streak with a hardfought 6-3 3-6 6-2 win over American Alison Riske. The Romanian, who had not won a match since her defeat in the Cincinnati final to Garbine Muguruza, overcame a sloppy start before claiming 12 of the final 14 points to set up a second round clash against Magdalena Rybarikova or Eugenie Bouchard. Germany's Angelique Kerber began her campaign with a 6-2 7-5 win over Japanese teenager Naomi Osaka. Kerber, the former world number one, came back from a break down to win five consecutive games in the second set to seal a second-round spot. Twice Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, seeded 12th, produced an impressive array of powerful groundstrokes to beat fellow Czech left-hander Kristyna Pliskova 6-3 7-5 in the opening round.
