Шарапова не получит wild-card на Уимблдоне

Maria Sharapova

The Russian tennis player will have to get into the main draw tournament through the qualification.

Wimbledon organizing Committee has no plans to provide Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova a wild card to participate in competitions. Against this stands the head of the Committee for the wild card tournament Tim Henman.

In case of refusal to issue an invitation to the tournament, Sharapova will have to break into the main draw through the qualification. Russian woman already has to its credit the required number of points to participate in the preliminary matches of Wimbledon.

Earlier, Sharapova, who recently returned to the court after the disqualification for doping, was denied a wild card into Roland Garros.
