Injured Sharapova out of Indian Wells: organisers

Los Angeles, Wednesday: Maria Sharapova has withdrawn from next month’s WTA Indian Wells Open after failing to overcome a right shoulder injury, tournament organisers said Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Russian star has been struggling with a right shoulder problem which forced her withdrawal from the Saint Petersburg tournament last month.

Organisers of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells announced on Wednesday the same problem had prompted her withdrawal from the March 4-17 event in California.

Sharapova’s place in the main draw will be taken by Germany’s Mona Barthel, organisers said.
