Sharapova now out of Fed Cup
Just four days after saying she could play in the Fed Cup semifinal this weekend, Maria Sharapova announced today that she cannot do so because of her shoulder injury. Her replacement will be Elena Vesnina. Sharapova is the second team member to pull out of Fed Cup; Svetlana Kuznetsova, also suffering from a shoulder injury, has also withdrawn.
