  Sharapova Shines Bright on Opening Night

  With the guts of a prize fighter, the talent of a champion, and the beauty of a Hollywood starlet, it was perfectly appropriate for women's top seed Maria Sharapova to headline opening night at the 2005 US Open.

  Greek Eleni Daniilidou was a quality first-round opponent, but nothing Sharapova couldn't handle.

  Moving Daniilidou around the court and showing no ill affects from time spent away from the court in recent weeks, Sharapova had her way, eventually running away with a comprehensive, straight set, 6-1, 6-1 win.

  "I feel a lot stronger in my arm and I moved quite well today. I don't think I moved that well in quite a while," said Sharapova, who had suffered a muscle strain in her right pectoral in Los Angeles a few weeks ago during practice.

  "I'm running in Central Park like every single day, getting my movement, still trying to get my arm stronger."

  Exhibiting her trademark relentlessness throughout the match, Sharapova laced four aces past Daniilidou to go with 22 winners and a solid five-of-eight on break point opportunities.

  "The first few games were a little bit tough," Sharapova said.

  "(I) haven't played a lot of matches, so I'm just trying to get used to the conditions, the stadium, the wind, playing under the lights for the first time in a while. It felt really good. When you're out for a little while, you go out there and I really felt like I missed it. So it was a good feeling to be back on the court."

  The current world No. 2, who reached the top ranking for the first time in her career before Lindsay Davenport reclaimed it with the Pilot Pen Tennis title, now moves into the second round.

  She will meet Dally Randriantefy, a 6-3, 6-1 winner over American Mary Gambale on Monday.
