Two of this year’s French Open semi-finalists, Maria Sharapova and Marion Bartoli, have today announced their withdrawal from the AEGON Classic.

Sharapova, who has withdrawn through illness, commented: “The Birmingham tournament is one of my favourite events of the year and has great history for me.

“I am really sorry that I will miss all my amazing fans this year, but I will be back next year for sure.”

Marion Bartoli has withdrawn due to an injury sustained in Paris.

Tournament Director, Patrick Hughesman commented: “This is disappointing news for the tournament as Maria is very popular here in Birmingham.

“However we do still have world class players competing at the event, including Ana Ivanovic and Britain’s own Heather Watson, so it will be a great event and we’re looking forward to it enormously.”
