Sharapova withdraws from Roland Garros

Paris – Maria Sharapova has pulled out of this year's French Open with a shoulder injury, the two-time former Roland Garros winner announced on her official website on Wednesday.

Sharapova, 32, a five-time Grand Slam champion, has not played since pulling out of a tournament in her native Russia at the end of January.

"Sometimes the right decisions aren't always the easiest ones," she said in a post.

"In better news, I have returned to the practice court, and slowly building the strength back in my shoulder."
