The former world champion Sharapova who came back after serving a 15-month doping suspension, needed a wildcard to enter the main draw as she is ranked 146th.And when her name was drawn alongside Halep's in the first round it set up a contest that felt more like a Grand Slam finalizer than the opener.
After the dramatic win, Sharapova, who now has a 7-0 record against Romania's Halep said;
"You never know what you're going to feel until you win that match point, but everything you go through is worth it for this moment."
"You sometimes wonder why you put in all the work, and this is exactly why."
