LOS ANGELES — Maria Sharapova has called a news conference to make what her agent calls a “major announcement.”

The news conference is scheduled for noon on Monday in Los Angeles. Her agent, Max Eisenbud, declined to say what the subject of the announcement is.

The news conference comes days after Sharapova announced she was pulling out of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells because of a left forearm injury.


She has suffered a string of injuries in recent years, including a right leg injury that caused her to withdrawal from the U.S. Open.

The five-time major champion hasn’t competed since losing to Serena Williams in the Australian Open quarterfinals in January.

Sharapova, who is involved in numerous business ventures off the court, is currently No. 7 in the WTA rankings.
