Contradictory to previous reports by Maria Sharapova's agent, Sharapova has pulled out of a Hong Kong exhibition next week (Jan. 7th-10th). Sharapova's team recently announced that Sharapova would be more ready than ever to make a comeback come 2009, after a shoulder injury has kept her off the tour since her early-round Wimbledon loss in late June. “She’s doing good,” Max Eisenbud, Sharapova's agent, said in an interview through telephone in Novemeber. “Everything’s on track.” If she can't be ready by Jan. 7th, then who knows if she will be ready less than 2 weeks later to defend her Aussie Open trophy. All the best to Maria.
