    Maria Sharapova commits to play in new Bay Area tour event

    Apr 17, 2018

    SAN JOSE, California — Maria Sharapova has committed to play in the Bay Area this summer as the former Stanford WTA stop moves to San Jose State University.

    The five-time Grand Slam champion will play in the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic from July 30 to. Aug. 5, the tournament announced Monday. It has a 28-player singles draw.

    This will be the first year of the event at San Jose State after the former Bank of the West Classic was held at Stanford.

    After a first-round win last year, former world No. 1 Sharapova withdrew from the 2017 tournament at Stanford with soreness in her left arm. That came after she dealt with a left thigh injury following her April 2017 return from a 15-month doping ban.
