Five-time major champion Maria Sharapova, ranked No. 146 in the world at the time and playing in just her 11th match of the year, shocked No. 2 seed Simona Halep, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, in front of a sold-out crowd in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Opening Night of the 2017 US Open.

There was a lot at stake for both players heading into the tournament. Sharapova was in the midst of a comeback after serving a 15-month doping suspension and battling a series of injuries that plagued her return to the tour that April. Halep, ranked No. 2 in the world, had the chance to move to No. 1 for the first time in her career with a solid performance at the year's final major.
