Sharapova Out of the Games

“No chance of me competing in Beijing” is how Maria put it. Russia’s would be top seed at the Olympics pulled out citing two small tendon tears in her right shoulder. The good news is that it is a completely separate injury from the one that plagued her throughout 2007. The bad news is that a tendon tear takes a long time to heal, leaving her in jeopardy for the U.S. Open. But, the worst thing is that she seemed genuinely excited and proud to compete in the games. And after all the crap she took about not competing for Russia in the past, she can’t represent them on the biggest stage.
