Maria Sharapova out of Miami
Maria Sharapova has pulled out of the Miami Open which, in light of recent developments, isn't a shock. Sharapova had just two practices at Indian Wells – one Monday night, then the following morning – after playing just one match since the Australian Open. She lost her first-round match in the desert to Naomi Osaka, and then announced the dismissal of coach Sven Groeneveld. The official reason is a left forearm injury. That's something she was grappling with even before her 15-month doping suspension. Sharapova's not entered in anything until Stuttgart, then Madrid.
