Maria Sharapova has withdrawn from next week's Bank of the West Classic at Stanford because of a left hip injury suffered during Wimbledon.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