Maria Sharapova advances, returns shot at Caroline Wozniacki

NEW YORK -- Maria Sharapova fought off a tough challenge Friday from American Sofia Kenin and then addressed a bigger foe -- the perception the US Open is playing favorites.

Sharapova, given a wild card by the U.S. Tennis Association into her first Grand Slam tournament since a 15-month doping ban, has played all three matches on the main court.

"I'm super excited," Venus Williams said when asked about becoming an aunt by ESPN's Pam Shriver before Friday's match.

"When you look on center court, I understand completely the business side of things and everything," Wozniacki told Ekstra Bladet TV of Denmark.

9 seed reached the second week for the seventh straight major, the longest active streak in women's tennis.
