The Russian came out on top in one of the best matches at a major in 2017 as she fought her way past her Romanian opponent to win 6-4 4-6 6-3 and reach the second round.

After such a long period away from the game and having suffered with injury since making her return in April, it was perhaps no surprise to see her overwhelmed at the end of the match and she could not fight back the tears.
