“This is my first completed match since July, so it’s a pretty big deal for me!” Sharapova said.
“Coming into this event I did everything I could to be healthy. I just didn’t quite know how my results would go.
“Even though I didn’t play my best tennis today I still got through, and that’s what matters, especially against such a tough competitor like Radwanska. We always have such close matches here.
“To fight hard and be able to win the match in the end means so much to me.”
