Maria Sharapova has pulled out of this year's French Open with a shoulder injury, the two-time former Roland Garros victor announced on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old world number 35 has not played since pulling out of an event in her native Russian Federation at the end of January and had a small operation in February. Sharapova did her best to overcome the pain and start playing on the competitive level again although she had to withdraw in front of the home fans in Russian Federation and reach her team of doctors to see how serious the injury was.

The 32-year-old won the title at Roland Garros in 2012 to complete a career grand slam and won the clay-court major again in 2014.

'Withdrawing from the French Open today.

The French Open starts in Paris on May 26. "Sometimes the right decisions aren't the easiest ones".

Sharapova said she has returned to practice and is "slowly building the strength back" in her shoulder.

"I'll really miss you Paris, until next year".

In February, the world number 35 said she had undergone a small procedure to fix a long-standing shoulder problem.
