Maria Sharapova rallied again on Sunday at the French Open, moving into the quarterfinals by beating Li Na of China 4-6, 6-0, 6-4.

Sharapova is making her return to Grand Slam tennis after almost a year off due to a right shoulder injury. She lost the first set of her matches in the first and third rounds, and lost the middle set in the second round.

The three-time major champion needs only a title at Roland Garros to complete a career Grand Slam.
