Maria Sharapova hit the court hard in Queens prepping for her big return to professional tennis later this week.
The tarnished tennis star received a wild card entry to this year's US Open. She's facing the number two seed, Simona Halep.
Photogs were there while Sharapova practiced her serves, backhands, and volleys before the big match.
There's a ton of pressure on the 30-year-old, who is coming off of a suspension for doping. She tried in vain to gain entry to the French Open, so this will be the first time tennis fans will see the popular athlete back on the court.
