US Open 2017 results LIVE: Day 3 scores as Maria Sharapova returns to Arthur Ashe | Tennis | Sport

Sharapova returned from a 15-month ban earlier this year after being suspended in 2016 for testing positive for banned substance meldonium.

The nature of her absence has made her a controversial figure and French Open authorities refused to give her a wildcard.

But the US Open looked differently on her and she rewarded them by knocking out No 2 seed Simona Halep in the first round.

The Russian faces Timea Babos of Hungary on Arthur Ashe around 8.30pm UK time.
