2017 French Open - Maria Sharapova Denied French Open Wildcard Tuesday May 16,2017

Twice former champion Maria Sharapova was surprisingly denied a wildcard into the French Open on Tuesday May 16,2017 - ending intense speculation about her place in the claycourt slam since she returned from a 15-month doping ban.
The 30-year-old Russian, who made her comeback last month after serving a suspension following a positive test for heart drug meldonium at last year's Australian Open, had hoped for a favour from the French Tennis Federation (FFT) because her ranking, currently 211, does not warrant an automatic place.
The decision was announced by the FFT on Facebook Live shortly before Sharapova was due to play her second round at the Italian Open in Rome.
