(AP) Maria Sharapova has withdrawn from next week's Bank of the West Classic at Stanford because of a left hip injury suffered during Wimbledon.


Tournament director Kim Hall said in a statement Monday that organizers "are disappointed for our fans." She added that "unfortunately injuries are a part of the sport."


The second-ranked Sharapova lost 6-3, 6-4 to Michelle Larcher de Brito in the second round of Wimbledon last month. Sharapova tumbled several times during the match, complaining about court conditions, taking a medical timeout and later saying she thought she strained a hip muscle.


Sharapova announced on her website Saturday that she had hired Jimmy Connors as her new coach, one day after she parted ways with Thomas Hogstedt.
