Maria Sharapova has pulled out of this week's WTA tournament in Montreal with a heel injury.
Sharapova hurt her foot in the Cincinnati Open final defeat against Kim Clijsters on Sunday.
However she is hoping the injury will heal ahead of the final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open.
"I felt some pain in my foot late in the second set which kind of scared me so I have been forced to pull out of Montreal," the former world number one said on her official website.
The US Open starts at Flushing Meadows on August 30.
