Maria Sharapova (L) shakes hands with Aryna Sabalenka after being forced to retire with a thigh injury

Maria Sharapova’s Australian Open preparations suffered a blow after a thigh injury forced her to retire from the Shenzhen Open on Friday.

The former world No 1 was trailing 6-1 4-2 against Aryna Sabalenka during their quarter-final clash when she called it a day.

Sharapova, who won the Australian Open in 2008, last tasted WTA success in 2017 at the Tianjin Open against Sabalenka after a 15-month doping suspension.
