Sharapova, Keys out
MARIA Sharapova and Madison Keys have withdrawn from next week’s Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham as they look to regain full fitness ahead of Wimbledon. Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon champion, said she needed rest after reaching the French Open quarterfinals. The 31-year-old Russian served a doping ban in 2016. American Keys, 23, will miss the event due to an abdominal injury.
