Maria Sharapova withdrew Friday from the upcoming Sony Ericsson Open, saying she’s not ready to play a full tournament of singles as she recovers from a shoulder injury. Defending men’s champion Nikolay Davydenko also withdrew because of a foot infection. The tournament begins Wednesday. Sharapova played her first match in seven months March 12 when she lost in doubles at Indian Wells.
