Former No. 1 and 5-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova has shut down her 2018 season, withdrawing from Beijing, Tianjin and Moscow.

“Unfortunately as I recover from my right shoulder injury, I am withdrawing from Beijing, Tianjin and Moscow,” Sharapova said.

“I will miss competing at each of these tournaments, but it is important that I allow for proper rest and recovery in the upcoming weeks.

“I was looking forward to coming back to Tianjin to defend my title but unfortunately I need to give myself time to recover from injury,” she added.

“I am disappointed that I won’t be able to play in front of all of the fans in Tianjin again and I hope to be able to play there in the future. I wish everyone at the tournament a successful five-year anniversary.”

The 31-year-old Sharapova’s last match of the year was a straight-set loss to Carla Suarez Navarro in the fourth round of the US Open.

Sharapova is ranked No. 24.

More time for her boyfriend to spend on her rear end. If you are not sure what it means, leave your cats in the other room and check the internet. You are welcome.
