MADRID — Maria Sharapova will return to tennis at next week’s Mallorca Open after being sidelined with a right shoulder injury since January.
The Mallorca Open said the former No. 1 has accepted a wild-card invitation.
The 32-year-old Sharapova hasn’t played since her ailing shoulder forced her to withdraw from the St. Petersburg Open in January. In February, she underwent what she called a “small procedure” in hopes of dealing with the issue that had been causing her pain since last year.
The Mallorca Open is run by Toni Nadal, uncle and former coach of Rafael Nadal.
