Singapore - Maria Sharapova won her first match since the Wimbledon quarter-final in a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory against Agnieszka Radwanska at the WTA Finals on Sunday.

Sharapova was sidelined after the Wimbledon semi-finals until the Wuhan tournament in China four weeks ago with a prolonged foot injury.

She retired in the third set of her first match at Wuhan with a left wrist injury.

Sharapova, looking rusty from the lack of match play, needed 2 hours, 47 minutes to finally nail down the win against Radwanska.

She served for the match at 5-2 and dropped her serve. At 5-4, she double-faulted on her first match point, but won the match two points later when Radwanska netted a forehand.

This marked Sharapova's 13th career win in 15 matches played against Radwanska.
