Sharapova to enter Wimbledon qualifying

Since returning from her 15-month doping ban last month, Sharapova has played in three events on the WTA tour in an attempt to get her world ranking to a level where she can automatically enter into any event, including the Grand Slams, once again.

She said she would not request a wild card for Wimbledon - although the cashed-up Grand Slam tournament would not have had the same commercial reason as Birmingham to grant her one.

Sharapova has moved to prevent a similar scenario happening at Wimbledon, announcing that she will take part in the preliminary rounds at Roehampton in the week leading up to the main tournament.

That suspension meant her ranking is not yet good enough for Roland Garros.

Sharapova needed to reach at least the semi-finals of the Italian Open to qualify for the main draw of Wimbledon 2017.

Melodium was only banned at the beginning of 2016 but Sharapova said she had been taking it for over 10 years as she was magnesium deficient and had recorded several irregular electrocardiography (EKG) tests.

The five-time grand slam tournament victor will climb into the top 200 on Monday, high enough to earn a trip to London, albeit for a Wimbledon match programme that will begin earlier than usual.

Maria Sharapova will play in the Wimbledon qualifying tournament. "Now that Maria has earned direct entry into Wimbledon qualifying, we want to give British tennis fans the chance to see her compete on grass here in Britain beforehand".
