Maria Sharapova will face Roberta Vinci in her first game back after 15-month suspension in the 1st round at Porsche Stuttgart Grand Prix 2017.
The former World’s No. 1 Maria Sharapova was serving a two-year suspension for the violation of anti-doping regulations. Now, she will try to restart her career.
In her comeback game, The Russian will play against Roberta Vinci who has not been in good form. For the last time, Sharapova participated in the Australian Open in 2016, where it reached the 1/4-finals.
Roberta Vinci has only won victory in the last two months. The 34-year-old world No 35 has lost her last two first rounds at Biel and Miami. Vinci reached the second round at Indian Wells, where she lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova 2-6, 6-2, 1-6.
Surely Sharapova has worked hard for her return to the court. All eyes will be on Maria but she had more than enough experience and I expect this only to motivate her more. Roberta Vinci is far from his best game and we expect the Russian to win the match.
