Maria Sharapova's outfit sparkled even if her play sometimes didn't during her Grand Slam return at the U.S. Open but the former world No. 1's run to the fourth round showed she is back in business on and off the court.Fifth seed Wozniacki blasted the USTA and Sharapova when she was relegated to a small outside court for her second round match while the 146th ranked Russian soaked up the applause on center court.Sharapova was unapologetic and delivered a stinging return worthy of anything she has produced on court.Hard feelings aside, even Wozniacki conceded she understood the business side of the sport and Sharapova's place in it.Her drug ban notwithstanding, Sharapova remains one of the world's most recognizable athletes and could be set to regain her former corporate standing.Sharapova was unable to deliver extended stretches of brilliant tennis at the U.S. Open but there was every sign that the 30-year-old is set to climb back up the rankings and reclaim her spot as one of the best paid women athletes.
