Photos from Stanford: Sharapova withdraws, Muguruza moves on

The 2017 Bank of the West Classic had to deal with some serious bad news on Wednesday as Maria Sharapova was forced to withdraw from the event just hours before her second-round match against Lesia Tsurenko, due to a left forearm injury.

Sharapova’s withdrawal granted Tsurenko a free pass into the quarterfinal stage where she’ll face Madison Keys, who punched her quarterfinal ticket after a tough match against American qualifier Caroline Dolehide.

In the evening, Garbine Muguruza played her Stanford opener, her first match since winning Wimbledon. The Spaniard made a successful and quick transition to the hard courts, beating talented American junior Kayla Day in two quick sets.
