WUHAN, China — Playing her first match in nearly three months, Maria Sharapova retired with an arm injury Monday in the third set of her opening match at the Wuhan Open. The third-ranked Sharapova called for a trainer to look at her left forearm after the first game of the final set. She played two more games before telling the chair umpire she could not continue. Sharapova was leading Barbora Strycova 7-6 (7-1), 6-7 (7-4), 2-1 when she decided to stop. Sharapova missed the entire hard-court season, including the U.S. Open, with a leg injury.
