NEW YORK (AP) - Maria Sharapova has advanced to the second round
of the U.S. Open with a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Tsvetana Pironkova of
Bulgaria.

In her return to Flushing Meadows after missing last year with a shoulder injury, Sharapova hit 29 winners to only six for Pironkova in an easy win Tuesday night.

The 29th-seeded Russian is seeking her second U.S. Open and fourth Grand Slam title.

As she often does, Sharapova made as big a statement with her play as her tennis wear - a black dress with silver straps and a matching silver headband.
