Sharapova’s Wimbledon fate to be decided

Former World’s No.1 Maria Sharapova’s Wimbledon fate to be decided on June 20 by the tournament organisers.

Sharapova, who returned to action last week after a 15-month ban for an anti-doping violation, could still climb high enough in the WTA rankings to take her place in the Wimbledon qualifying tournament at Roehampton and failure would need a wildcard, either into the main draw or the qualifying event the week before.

After reaching the semi-finals in Stuttgart last week, Sharapova’s first tournament since her ban for taking the prohibited substance Meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open, her world ranking rose to 262 in the world rankings.
