US Open 2018: Sharapova beats veteran Schnyder to reach 2nd round

Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova held off a spirited fightback from Swiss veteran Patty Schnyder to reach the second round of the US Open. The Russian defeated Schnyder – who, at 39, is the oldest player ever to make the main draw of a Grand Slam via qualifying – 6-2 7-6 (8-6).

Maria Sharapova’s two-year doping ban has been reduced to 15 months following her appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The five-time Grand Slam winner, 29, was initially banned by the International Tennis Federation for two years after testing positive for meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open.
