Tennis: Sharapova Out Of Stanford With Arm Injury
Tennis star, Maria Sharapova will play no further part at the WTA Bank of the West Classic.
Tournament officials announced that the five-time Grand Slam champion has withdrawn due to a left arm injury.
"We're sad to announce that @mariasharapova has withdrawn after doctor's advice regarding her left arm," a post on the tournament's Twitter feed said.
Sharapova played her first US match in more than two years on Monday, defeating American Jennifer Brady 6-1, 4-6, 6-0.
"Toward the end of the Monday night's match, I felt pain in my left forearm," Sharapova said Wednesday. "After yesterday's scan, the doctor has recommended I don't risk further injury."
The former world number one from Russia hadn't played in the US since March of 2015, before serving a 15-month doping suspension for the use of meldonium.
