Maria Sharapova has been added to the long list of withdrawals of top players from the Rogers Cup in Montreal. The Russian three-time Grand Slam champion started to feel pain in her left foot during the second set of the bizarre Cincinnati final against Kim Clijsters on Sunday and has been forced to pull out from the now infamous tournament in Montreal.

  1. I’m a tennis fan for few years now, and Sharapova’s always been a synonym for elegance and beauty both on and off the court. This is why I receive this as bad news, and I still can’t believe what happened in Cincinnati finals … it was so unbelieveable.
