Technically, this wasn't an upset.

After all, a 15-month suspension dropped Maria Sharapova so far down the world rankings, there was probably some dudette in Nome higher up the list.

Meanwhile, Anastasija Sevastova is ranked 27th by the WTA and seeded No 16 at the US Open.

To say she's a crafty competitor is an understatment.

The 27-year-old native of Liepāja, Latvia had a unique insight to Sharapova: She, too, had a long spell away from the game. Two years, in fact, due to injuries.

So she developed her game plan based on the experience of her own comeback.
