Maria Sharapova has taken to Twitter to reveal her delight at beating Maria Sharapova in her WTA Finals opener on Sunday.

The Russian battled hard for two hours and 47 minutes to claim a 4-6 6-3 6-4 victory over her opponent in her first match win since Wimbledon.

Sharapova tweeted afterwards:

“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.”

Elsewhere, Simona Halep beat Flavia Pennetta 6-0 6-3 in an hour and 10 minutes.
