Maria Sharapova had made a little comeback, playing only doubles at Indian Wells last week, but this week we’re already hearing she’ll skip the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami.
After her first-round loss in doubles, the Russian admitted her form was not on high-enough level to play singles, so the withdrawal from Miami didn’t come as a shock.
We’re still wondering when Sharapova will be ready to return to playing normally. She’s been injured since April 2008 and has not played a tournament in singles since the Rogers Cup in Montreal in the summer of 2008. (source: Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, photo: Ralf Reinecke)
