Sharapova had ultrasound due to stomach bug

Monday, August 27, 2012 /by

Maria Sharapova says that after contracting a stomach virus just before the Olympic final, she had blood work and an ultrasound done when she returned to North America. Sharapova consequently pulled out of Montreal and Cincinnati after doctors told her she should rest.

"[I had the tests] because of the pain I was having," Sharapova said after her first round victory at the U.S. Open. "It was really weird. They told me I was fine, not pregnant. I'm like, Can I get my money back?"

Sharapova refused to disclose how severe the pain was during the Olympic final, just saying, "it was OK...At the time I was being drama, but I was fine."

The Russian also said that she is not getting married in November to her fiancee, Sasha Vujacic.
