"After an additional scan, the muscle tear that I sustained in Rome will unfortunately not allow me to compete in the grass court tournaments I was scheduled to play", she said in a statement.

The 30-year-old Sharapova made her return to competitive tennis this year after a positive test for meldonium had resulted in a 15-month ban from the sport.

Maria Sharapova announced on Saturday that she will not play in Wimbledon this summer.

She was wearing a bandage on her thigh at the time.

It turns out the fuss over Maria Sharapova's wild cards was all for naught. EPA/ETTORE FERRARIMaria Sharapova of Russian Federation returns the ball to Christina McHale of the United States during their first round match for the Italian Open tennis tournament at the Foro Italico in Rome, Italy, 15 May 2017.


She was still controversially handed a wildcard for the WTA grasscourt event in Birmingham later this month, a key warm-up for Wimbledon.

Sharapova was scheduled to play the qualifying rounds at Wimbledon, as she had accumulated enough rankings points for direct entry.

The news means Sharapova will also withdraw from the Aegon Classic in Birmingham, for which she had been granted a wild card. Her performances then tailed off, with a Madrid second-round loss and the Rome thigh injury a week later which forced her to retire in a second-round match.

Only two weeks ago, Wimbledon decided that the qualifying event, held at nearby Roehampton, would be broadcast for the first time.
