The 2006 U.S. Open champion Maria Sharapova is pulling out of this year's tourney.
She withdrew Wednesday because of bursitis in her right shoulder.
"Maria has informed us that she will be unable to compete at the U.S. Open this year due to a right shoulder bursitis and has withdrawn from the tournament," U.S. Open tournament director David Brewer.
Tennis.com reported that Sharapova had a cortisone shot to treat the pain in her shoulder.
So much for the publicity stunt of Sharapova changing her name to Sugarpova to pump up her role in the new James Bond movie, huh?
