Maria Sharapova shouldn’t be granted French Open wildcard. That’s what her Polish counterpart Agnieszka Radwanska says.
With double French Open champion Sharapova unranked now, everybody will monitor the French Tennis Federation next month just to find out whether the 30-year-old Russian female player could count on a wildcard into the tournament or not.
During the so-called “week of May 15″ the final decision is going to be officially announced, as the French federation, organizing the tournament, revealed on Friday in an interview to Reuters.
The French Open is scheduled on May 28.
After 15 months out in Stuttgart, next week the Russian tennis player gets back to the WTA Tour, having gained a wildcard. Aside from that, Maria has been granted invites to play in Rome and Madrid.
By the way, the previous week Sharapova had the International Tennis Federation criticized for not letting her know that Meldonium – a product the female tennis player had employed illegally in her career to cope with her health disorder – had been added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of forbidden doping substances in late 2015.
