Sharapova won the first tournament after suspension

Sharapova won the first tournament after suspension”

Sharapova, who won the Tianjin Open two days ago, brought her usual power but lacked accuracy with some wild swings on key points.

The second set went with serve nearly for the duration, with either player getting to deuce on the other's serve just once - as Sharapova was forced to save break point in the second game.

"I felt fine physically, to be honest, especially after having played five matches in five days (in Tianjin)".

Sharapova was under pressure on serve from the start and saved six break points before finally being broken to 6-5.

Sharapova was well supported in her home country throughout but was unable to produce the goods as she went down in straight sets after an hour and 55 minutes, much to the delight of her Slovakian opponent. In the second game, the situation repeated itself - Sobolenko led 5:1, then implemented a set-bol, and after a stubborn fight in the tie-break has conceded defeat.

"She's a very hard opponent, who plays very differently than Maria", Rybarikova assessed. Making fourth appearance at VTB Kremlin Cup where she made back-to-back QF showings in 2005 (l. Safina) and 2006 (l. Chakvetadze via w/o due to right foot strain), Sharapova lost her first career match against Rybarikova completing at the first hurdle her eight tournament after the suspension.

Maria Sharapova suffered a first-round exit at the Kremlin Cup to Magdalena Rybarikova in her first match in Russian Federation since returning from a doping ban earlier this year.

Broady overcame German sixth seed Tatjana Maria 6-2 6-2 to make the most of a lucky loser spot after initially falling in the final round of qualifying to France's Pauline Parmentier.
