As noted at Sports Illustrated on Monday, August 27, 2012, Maria Sharapova decided to pull out from Montreal and Cincinnati after doctors told her she needs to rest, but categorically denied that she is pregnant and that she is getting married this coming November.
According to the report, Sharapova, who won over Hungarian Melinda Czink on the first round of the US Open 2012 (6-2, 6-2) that day, admitted during a press conference that she had a stomach virus just before the Olympic finals, and that she had blood work and an ultrasound done when she returned to the US.
“Because of the pain I was having, I had some tests done, some blood work, some ultrasound stuff. They said I should just probably rest…They told me I was fine, not pregnant. I’m like, ‘Can I get my money back?’” Sharapova was quoted telling to reporters; who will be playing against Lourdes Dominguez Lino in the second round.
“I don’t have a wedding coming up in November. That’s not true. I’m definitely not getting married in Istanbul in November. I’m surprised anyone believed that.” Sharapova added, who is engaged to former Los Angeles Lakers player Sasha Vujacic. He has been playing pro basketball in Turkey.
