Episode 198a: U.S. Open Day 1 - Sharapova Beats Halep
In one of the biggest and best Slam first rounds ever, Maria Sharapova beat #2 Simona Halep in three thrilling sets. Ben and Courtney didn't quite see that coming, so we break it down in this special Day 1 episode from the U.S. Open. What are Sharapova's chances going forward in what's turned into a very open quarter suddenly?
There were some other upsets, too (Ferrer? Konta?). Also, Aleksandra Krunic is a delight.
