PARIS (AP) - Maria Sharapova managed to earn yet another three-set win at the French Open.

The unseeded Russian lost the first set Friday but rallied to beat Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 and advanced to the fourth round.

Sharapova entered the French Open despite missing nearly 10 months of play because of a shoulder injury that required surgery. She also was pushed to three sets in each of her previous two matches.

Sharapova has won three Grand Slam titles, but none at Roland Garros.
