  • Sore left arm keeps Sharapova out of Cincinnati event

An ongoing left arm injury has forced former World No. 1 Maria Sharapova to withdraw from the Western and Southern Open.

With her eyes on the upcoming US Open at Flushing Meadows later this month, Sharapova announced her decision to pull out of the WTA Premier Five event in Cincinnati on Saturday.

The 2011 champion was originally due to face the French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in a must-watch first round match, a battle between youth and experience and an encounter between two Roland Garros champions.

However, the five-time Grand Slam champion will skip Cincinnati, having sat out the Rogers Cup in Toronto following her withdrawal at the Bank of the West Classic.

"I arrived in Cincinnati yesterday eager to play".

World number 149 Sharapova would need a wild card to play in the main draw in NY.

Sharapova suffered the injury while playing in her first USA match in more than two years, defeating American Jennifer Brady 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 in her Stanford opener.

She had not played in the U.S. since March of 2015 due in part to a 15-month doping suspension for the use of meldonium.
