Fans at the 2017 US Open were treated to another dramatic Maria Sharapova match on Wednesday as the 2006 champion fought her way past Timea Babos into the third round. After a thrilling three-set night encounter with Simona Halep on Monday, Sharapova once more put her famous fighting spirit on display, turning her luck around after dropping the first set and trailing in the second, much to the enjoyment of the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd.
Moreover, our photographer closely followed the first-round loss of Genie Bouchard, the second-round upset of fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki, as well as the progress of the 2004 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, Petra Kvitova, Julia Goerges, and others.
