St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova of Russia decided to pull out of next week's JP Morgan Chase Open.
 

The 17-year-old sensation will skip the event in Carson, California as she seeks some additional rest after stunning two-time Wimbledon titlist Serena Williams in the final at the All England Club two weeks ago. The shocking victory pushed the Russian up to No. 8 in the WTA rankings and made her the first Russian champion at Wimbledon.

Russian players have won the last two Grand Slams, as Anastasia Myskina beat Elena Dementieva in an all-Russian French Open final last month. Four of the world's current top 10 female players hail from Russia.

Sharapova's next event will be in San Diego in two weeks.
