Maria Sharapova withdraws from match in Stanford due to arm injury

Maria Sharapova pulls out of Stanford with arm injury

"Kayla has just won the US Open in juniors and she's just very promising, so I knew I had to be concentrated today", Muguruza said after her first match since Wimbledon. After scanning doctor advised me not to risk so as not to aggravate the injury.

She had been scheduled to play Wednesday night, so seventh-seeded Lesia Tsurenko moves on to the quarterfinals.

Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova made a battling return to United States hardcourts on Monday with a 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 victory over American Jennifer Brady in Stanford, California.

Sharapova was injured during Italian Open second round in May, weeks after she returned to action from a 15-month doping ban, reports Efe. The five-time Grand Slam champion added that, whilst she is disappointed that she is being kept away from tennis, she hopes to be back as soon as possible.

"This is definitely tough for Maria", Bank of the West Classic tournament director Vickie Gunnarsson said, according to the WTA.

In the opening round at Stanford, the former world No. 1 from Russian got past Jennifer Brady in three sets.

"Monday night's crowd was so special and I wish I could continue playing but I have to make a preventative decision". It is unknown whether Sharapova will play at the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, where she has also received a wildcard.

This is not Sharapova's first injury since returning from her ban from tennis in April of 2017.

That is because her ranking was not high enough at the entry cut-off point.
