Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Staring match point in the face, Maria Sharapova let loose a thunderous forehand and showed challenger Alexandra Panova why shes ranked No. 2 in the world. Sharapova trailed 1-4 in the third set, staved off a pair of match points and survived for one of her most memorable comeback victories in an improbably entertaining second-round match at the Australian Open on Wednesday. The match lasted 2 1/2 hours, the third set alone taking 68 minutes despite Panova jumping out to a commanding lead with a pair of breaks of Sharapovas serve. Sharapova earned one back but trailed 4-5 and faced two match points. On the first, the five-time Grand Slam winner unleashed a powerful winning forehand on a second serve that hugged the line. The second was a longer point also won by Sharapova with a forehand, and from there Panova wilted. The French Open champ Sharapova won the game, held at love and quickly earned two match points of her own. She only needed one, as Panova was long at the end of a lengthy rally to secure Sharapovas 6-1, 4-6, 7-5 victory. I think I was dwelling too much on my mistakes and what I was doing wrong, and not really being in the present, something that Im usually really good at, said Sharapova. At that point when youre behind, you feel like youre making a lot of errors and dont have a good rhythm out there, but I really just kept trying to take it one point at a time, think positively, and change my thought process a little bit out there. When other things arent working, maybe the mental side of things will help you out. The 25-year-old Panova entered the seasons first major as a qualifier and came in ranked 150th in the world. She lost all five of her previous Grand Slam matches before cruising past Sorana Cirstea on Monday. Sharapova, who committed 51 unforced errors and six double faults, won this major tournament in 2008 and was twice a runner-up. The former world No. 1 exited in the fourth round last year. Her next opponent will be 31st-seeded Kazakhstani Zarina Diyas, who overcame Anna Schmiedlova 3-6, 6-2, 8-6 at Melbourne Park. Meanwhile, third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep whipped Aussie Jarmila Gajdosova 6-2, 6-2 and seventh-seeded Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard blitzed Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens 6-0, 6-3. Up next for Halep will be American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, while Bouchard will face Frances Caroline Garcia. Tenth-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova mauled Italian veteran Roberta Vinci 6-2, 6-4, while 14th-seeded former French Open runner-up Sara Errani of Italy got past Spaniard Silvia Soler-Espinosa 7-6 (7-3), 6-3. In other action involving seeds, No. 21 Peng Shuai pasted Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 and No. 22 Czech and last weeks Sydney runner-up Karolina Pliskova held off Frances Oceane Dodin 7-5, 5-7, 6-4. Also on Day 3, Mattek-Sands edged out Kristina Mladenovic 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (8-6); Garcia beat Stefanie Voegele 6-3, 6-4; Czech Lucie Hradecka beat Polona Hercog 4-6, 6-3, 6-2; German Julia Goerges outlasted Klara Koukalova 6-3, 4-6, 6-2; Belgian Yanina Wickmayer snuck past Lara Arruabarrena 6-4, 4-6, 6-4; German Carina Witthoeft drilled American Christina McHale 6-3, 6-0; Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu topped Katerina Siniakova 7-5, 6-4; and Kazakhstans Yaroslava Shvedova downed Puerto Rican Monica Puig 6-2, 7-6 (8-6). On some more second-round action on Thursday, world No. 1 Serena Williams will face Vera Zvonareva in a rematch of the 2010 Wimbledon final, which was won by Williams, fourth-seeded reigning Wimbledon champ and last weeks Sydney titlist Petra Kvitova will take on German Mona Barthel, and eighth-seeded U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki will battle fellow former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka. The unseeded two-time Aussie champ from Belarus Azarenka titled back-to-back here in 2012 and 2013 before being slowed by a foot injury last year. She will meet Wozniacki for an eighth time on Thursday, with the Dane leading the Belarusian in their lifetime series, 4-3. Wozniacki got the better of Azarenka in the third round at the 2008 U.S. Open in their lone Grand Slam matchup. Also slated for action on Day 4 are sixth-seeded former Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska, 11th-seeded 2014 Aussie runner-up Dominika Cibulkova and 18th-seeded former No. 1 and 2003 Aussie finalist Venus Williams, who will take on fellow American Lauren Davis.

He played with Class AA Binghamton of the Eastern League in the New York Mets system last season.LOS ANGELES -- Dan Haren pitched a lot better than he bunted, which was fortuitous for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Haren overcame a leadoff homer by Curtis Granderson and a pair of failed sacrifice bunts to help the NL West leaders beat the error-prone New York Mets 6-2 on Friday night. Granderson drove Harens third pitch into the Mets bullpen in right field for his 28th career leadoff homer and fourth this season -- the most by a Mets player since Jose Reyes had four in 2008. The right-hander allowed only two singles after that. "I was really mad. Kind of a stupid pitch to Granderson," Haren said. "Hes not your typical leadoff hitter, hes got a lot of power, and I kind of laid one in there. I got a couple of outs after that and then really settled in pretty good." Haren (11-10) struck out six and walked none over seven innings, helping the Dodgers maintain their 3 1-2 game lead over San Francisco. The victory was his third in four starts after going 0-5 with a 10.03 ERA in his previous five outings. Jonathon Niese (7-9) allowed five runs -- two earned -- eight hits, and three walks in 6 2-3 innings. The unearned runs were the result of a throwing error by shortstop Wilmer Flores on a routine grounder by Adrian Gonzalez. "Its part of the game, A lot of us have had bad days, and weve all been there," Niese said. "Ive made a ton of errors that have cost us games. So you cant point the finger at (Flores). If I struck out Gonzalez, then he wouldnt have had to make that play. So its on my shoulders." The Mets tied a season high with four errors, including a dropped foul pop by first baseman Lucas Duda. "We had a bad night. It happens," manager Terry Collins said. "When you look up (after eight innings) and you have as many errors as youve got hits, thats not a good feeling. We looked a little ragged, but that shouldnt affect us." The Dodgers got their first two batters on in the third inning before Haren bunted into a double play started by Niese. But Dee Gordon slapped an opposite-field RBI single inside third to tie it 1-1. "I think the main thing Dee has done is stay within his approach," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Hes hit numerous balls down the third-base line, and that tells you hes lettingg the ball get deep.dddddddddddd Hes doing it against righties and lefties." Haren came up again in the fifth with runners at the corners and tried a suicide squeeze. He bunted through an 0-1 pitch, and Justin Turner was erased in a rundown at third, but Haren then singled to drive in Erisbel Arruebarrena and give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead. "I almost made four outs in two at bats," Haren said. "I havent done a squeeze in a long time -- since probably spring training -- and I just got a little antsy with it. But I was lucky "I put a pretty good at-bat together and got us the lead there, and I felt good about that. I was still frustrated that I left J.T. out there hanging." Gordon hit his major league-leading 11th triple with two out in the seventh and scored on Flores second error of the game. Carlos Torres relieved Niese, and Matt Kemp greeted him with a two-run double to make it 5-1. Until then, Mets relievers had stranded 132 of 166 inherited runners (79.5 per cent), the best in the majors. "Weve done a good job there. But Matt Kemps a pretty good hitter, so youve got to make pitches," Collins said. TRAINERS ROOM Mets: Closer Jenrry Mejia, who was held back from a save situation Wednesday at Oakland because of a sore back, was the first Mets player on the field to do running and was available if needed, Collins said. Dodgers: There have been no setbacks in the rehab programs for SS Hanley Ramirez (right oblique), 3B Juan Uribe (right hamstring), LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (right hip), and LHP Paco Rodriguez (back). Ramirez could be activated from the DL on Sunday. UP NEXT Mets: Rookie Jacob deGrom (6-5, 2.87 ERA) will be reinstated from the disabled list and make his first start since Aug. 7, after being sidelined with rotator cuff tendinitis. He gave up three home runs to the Dodgers in a 4-3 home loss on May 21, but has yielded just one homer in 69 1-3 innings over his last 11 starts. He is 5-0 with a 1.55 ERA in his last six outings. Dodgers: Zack Greinke (12-8, 2.75 ERA) pitches on seven days rest after being pushed back two days because of elbow discomfort. He will try to avoid losing three consecutive decisions for the first time since June 8, 2010, with Kansas City, when he dropped four starts in a row. ' ' '
