Sharapova is back

Former world No.1 Maria Sharapova advanced to the 3rd round of the French Open after defeating the 11th seeded Nadia Petrova on Wednesday 6-2, 1-6, 8-6.

In her first Grand Slam event since shoulder surgery, Sharapova is looking more like a top-ten player than her deceiving 102nd world ranking; she denied Petrova six break points in the third set.

Sharapova has missed alot of tennis including the last two Grand Slams. She probably won’t advance much further at Roland Garros, but this is a tune-up for Wimbledon in the summer. Nevertheless, its good to see her back, fellows you know exactly what I mean.
