Maria Sharapova suffers another injury setback as she withdraws from Stanford

She was competing as a wildcard in her fourth tournament after a 15-month doping ban.

Maria Sharapova has pulled out of the Rogers Cup in Toronto due to the left forearm injury she suffered in Stanford.

"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.

Maria Sharapova withdrew from the Rogers Cup with a sore left arm on Thursday, putting the five-time grand slam champion's US Open participation in doubt. She beat Jennifer Brady in three sets.

"I had a bit of a letdown but that's the way it is", Sharapova said.

President Trump said on Twitter on Wednesday that he wants transgender people barred from serving in the US military "in any capacity".

The injury will cast further doubt over Sharapova's participation at the US Open, the last Grand Slam event of the season which starts in NY on August 28.

Sharapova suffered the injury while playing in her first U.S. match in more than two years, defeating American Jennifer Brady 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 in her Monday opener at Stanford. After yesterday's scan, the doctor has recommended I don't risk further injury. This was the first WTA tournament she had played in the United States since 2015.

Early in the third, Sharapova fought off two break points to consolidate her lead, and wrapped up the match after two hours and two minutes.

Once again, Sharapova saw her odds sinking after having played only a match at Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, CA.

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