Maria Sharapova contracted a stomach virus after losing the Olympic final to Serena Williams and had blood work and an ultrasound performed upon her return to the United States to rule out a common cause of stomach trouble in 20-something women.
"[I had an ultrasound] because of the pain I was having," Sharapova said after defeating Melinda Czink 6-2, 6-2 in the first round of 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?'"
'Tis better to part with a co-pay than leave with a sonogram.
Sharapova is engaged to basketball player Sasha Vujacic. She said Monday that the wedding will not be in November, as had been reported in some media outlets.
The No. 3 seed will play Lourdes Dominguez Lino in the second round.
