Three-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova will return back to action on court at Sony Ericsson Open on Thursday and hopes to win the first WTA title here in Miami in 2012. Russian star has reached BNP Paribas Open final last week, before losing to 2012 Australian Open champion and World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in consecutive sets with a 6-2, 6-3 score line.
