An ongoing left arm injury has forced Maria Sharapova out of her third tournament this summer, as the 2011 Western & Southern Open champion has withdrawn from the 2017 event.

Sharapova was due to play French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the opening round. Sharapova also withdrew from the Rogers Cup due to the same injury, which first affected her back in 2015 and causing her to take a three-month break from the sport.

With her eyes on the upcoming US Open at Flushing Meadows later this month, Sharapova announced her decision to pull out of the WTA Premier Five event in Cincinnati on Saturday. "However, following the doctor's advice on-site, as a precaution for the US Open, I am unfortunately withdrawing from the tournament with the left forearm injury I sustained in Stanford", Sharapova said. Sharapova was forced to retire in her second round match against Mirjana Lucic-Baroni at the Internazionali BNL D'Italia before having to withdraw from the whole grass-court season due to a thigh injury, forcing her out of the Aegon Classic in Birmingham and the qualifying tournament of the Wimbledon Championships.

World number 149 Sharapova would need a wild card to play in the main draw in NY.

She had not played in the USA since March of 2015 due in part to a 15-month doping suspension for the use of meldonium.
