Maria Sharapova lights up US Open again with win over Jelena Ostapenko

Maria Sharapova sees US Open streak end in error-ridden defeat

She's got the power, like the crack of the whip.

With the same emphatic style, Aryna Sabalenlka beat 7-5 6-1 Petra Kvitova.

Maria Sharapova the 22 seed is back in the fourth round defeating No. 10 seed Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-2. She lost in that round in Flushing Meadows the last two years. Despite the social media furor about Sharapova choking, this could not be further from the truth. Sharapova rallied from within two points of a final set to break back and win the final three games of the match to reach the round of 32.

"I just wanted to improve from the second round, I didn't feel like I played my best tennis". "I got through that match really well and felt that I started with that energy today".

Tsurenko has never been past the fourth round at any Grand Slam tournament.

By reaching the third round, Millman equaled his best showing at any Grand Slam tournament. I think she likes the matchup of playing against me.

Both of these players are powerful hitters and as a result the fans should be treated to some entertaining tennis.

"But I do, as well".

The Romanian finally made it to the scoreboard after holding her serve in the fourth game. Unfortunately, forty-two unforced errors and 9 double faults meant that the match slipped away. The Russian, despite an inconsistent second serve, quickly gained a 5-1 lead. "It could have gone either way", recalled Sharapova. But the Russian has been less error-prone, with 28 fewer unforced errors to her name.

Armed groups have been fighting for control of the Libyan capital since the regime of dictator Moammar Gadhafi was toppled in 2011.

Similar to Federer, Sharapova has yet to drop a set, but that could easily change against the 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko, who can match the Russian's raw power from the baseline but is also prone to fits of inconsistency. But she's now lost in the second round at two consecutive majors, after doing the same at Wimbledon.

In the following games, Sharapova struggled less to hold her serve but she was still a break down and despite having numerous chances to retrieve the break she was not able to level up the scoreboard until the eighth game. Now that the tables had turned, it was Cirstea who had to serve to stay in the match. Sabalenka recently won the Connecticut Open.

While no top-10 seed remains on the bottom half of the draw, there is the Sharapova factor. "I faced a tough opponent and came through, so I'm happy with that". "I remember I wasn't there for the match".

"I want to help you", Lahyani could be heard saying. I enjoy it. I enjoy the game.

"I don't have any pressure", Nishikori said.

"Actually, before every match, I'm a little bit nervous".

"I had my chances, but I couldn't take them, especially in the third set." the vanquished No.4 seed said. "She put a lot of balls in, quite hard". Result_Start Marketa Vondrousova (CZE) b.

Sharapova took the first set easily before being pushed in the second, eventually winning 6-2 7-6 in just under two hours. Amusingly, Osaka was 0-40 down in the opening game!

Suarez Navarro, the No.30 seed, beat Garcia 5-7 6-4 7-6 (7-4).
