Beijing semi agony for Sharapova
Maria Sharapova
Injury forced Maria Sharapova to retire from her China Open semi-final match against fellow Russian Maria Kirilenko.

Sharapova lost the first set 6-4 and was losing the second 2-1 before pulling out, citing an existing chest problem, according to organisers.

Kirilenko will play Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld, who beat Poland's Marta Domachowska 7-5 6-3.

Groenefeld secured her place at the tournament following an injury to American Lindsay Davenport.

"I'm very excited. I hope it's going to be my first title," said the German.
