Maria Sharapova is sad to announce that she will not be able to compete in her next two events, the Family Circle Cup in Charleston and the Fed Cup matches, representing Russia against Spain, in Moscow. Maria has a message for her fans and supporters:

I haven't wanted to talk a lot about my injuries, but I'm afraid it has become obvious that I am having some problems with my right shoulder and left hamstring. I hurt my shoulder right before I started playing in Hong Kong, and kept hoping that I could work through it. I was told by doctors I had pretty severe inflammation, but decided to give it a shot. I think the anti-inflams and treatment helped me get through H.K and Australia. Unfortunately, my shoulder hasn't been able to be normal on its own, without the medicine.

My doctors have a positive outlook, despite telling me I cannot play for a while. They said I must drop out of the next two events, but they are confident that, with five or six weeks of rest, I will be ready for the next events. I am especially bummed about the Fed Cup, as I was looking forward to playing in Moscow, and representing my country in a team environment for the first time. I will be speaking with the Russian Federation soon about future matches. The Family Circle Cup is always a great event, and a tournament I look forward to competing in again.

It's difficult for me to take time off from tennis, but the first thing is my health and that's something that I have made a big priority in my career. I can only look forward to getting back on the court ASAP. Thanks, as always, for your support.

Drat! :fiery:

I knew something was wrong with Maria, the way she's been serving recently. It's just not Maria - putting in 90 mph first serves.

Get well soon, Masha. :hearts:

Assuming this is true, it would explain why Maria has done so poorly lately. It was obvious her play during the whole AO was well below her usual standard. Hope she gets well soon.
