Injured Sharapova pulls out of Wimbledon, grass circuit

Injured Sharapova won't qualify for Wimbledon

Maria Sharapova's hopes of featuring at Wimbledon have been dashed after the Russian confirmed in a Facebook post she will miss the entire grass-court season due to injury.

"I will continue to work on my recovery", her message said.

If the injury heals correctly, she should return to the court for the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, California, which beings July 31. She revealed the news in Facebook.

Her absence from the grass-court season means she is now longer possible to qualify automatically for the main draw of the US Open in August.

Sharapova was denied a wild card for this month's French Open and took a potentially divisive decision by the All England Club out of their hands by announcing she would go through qualifying. Sharapova received a wild-card entry for the event at Birmingham in June, and was supposed to enter qualifying for Wimbledon.
