Russian woman Maria Sharapova commented on her victory at the start of the tournament in Shenzhen . “Of course, the opponent was not easy, and it was difficult to play in such conditions. Considering that I did not play at tournaments for several months and I didn’t get a rival the easiest one, I think it was a great workout. I can not thank my fans. They are incredible. It seems they are gathered from all over China. It’s nice to see them together, “the WTA press service quotes Sharapova as saying.
