USA Today is reporting that Maria Sharapova is out for the rest of the tennis season with the shoulder injury that caused her to withdraw from competition earlier this year. In part:
Maria Sharapova is unlikely to return to the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour this year, her longtime agent, Max Eisenbud, said Wednesday. The reigning Australian Open champion pulled out of the Beijing Olympics and the U.S. Open after an MRI exam in Montreal this month revealed two small tears in her right shoulder.
I didn't know that tennis had seasons. Regardless, the good news is that the thigh appears to be intact.
