Maria Sharapova had high hopes entering the US Open this year, but ultimately crashed out before the quarter finals.

The Russian had a disappointing campaign, and she took to Twitter to send a message to her large fan base.

Despite going into the tournament as a wildcard, due to her lack of action over the past couple of years, Sharapova was still considered as one to look out for, but her journey was cut short yesterday.

Sharapova posted a picture of her following her final match of the tournament that had the caption: "I loved every minute, every day, every match! Thank you, New York and the @usopen."

Following her defeat, Sharapova was visibly holding back tears as the campaign was an obvious disappointment for her. However, she could have also been holding back the tears after finally returning to the Grand Slam stage following months and months of controversy.

In her final match of the tournament, Sharapova went up against the Latvian Anastasija Sevastova, who eventually took the match 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, denying the Russian a quarter final berth.

This campaign was the first for Sharapova following her 15-month suspension for using an illegal substance.

Her first appearance since 2014 was met with mixed reactions from fans, however, Sevastova held Sharapova with high respect as the two went head-to-head in a heated match up.

Replies to Sharapova's tweet were almost all positive, showing the Russian tennis star support and love despite crashing out before making it to the quarter final stage.

Many people and fans believe this US Open disappointment was a detriment to her popularity and stardom, but with this tweet, Sharapova brought her fans close together with the heartwarming message.

For Sharapova, it was an emotional end to what has been a turbulent time in her career, but now, after making her Grand Slam return, things will surely start to look up for the Russian.
