Maria Sharapova should not be given French Open wildcard, says Agnieszka Radwanska

Maria Sharapova should not be given French Open wildcard, says Agnieszka Radwanska

Earlier this month, French Tennis Federation (FFT) president Bernard Giudicelli had hinted at their reservations to give the 30-year-old player a wild card entry which she would require as her world ranking has nearly disappeared during her absence.

Maria Sharapova of Russian Federation wipes her face during her women's singles match against Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic during the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, France, June 1, 2015. She went on to beat Serena Williams three years later in the 2004 Wimbledon final to win her maiden Grand Slam.

Konta, the world No 7, has made a decision to play next week in an effort to spend more time on clay courts before the French Open begins next month.

"So far she hasn't been invited to play at slams in Paris and London and in my opinion that's how it should remain".

Sharapova could not have picked a better place to make her return.

Sharapova was originally banned for two years following a positive test for the newly-banned drug Meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open but the sanction was reduced to 15 months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Also in the Stern interview, Sharapova again hit out at the ITF - especially the boss of their anti-doping programme Stuart Miller - for failing to warn her before meldonium was added to the banned list.

Stuttgart offered Sharapova a wildcard entry because she no longer has a world ranking - a move that angered some players.

"I'm not hiding my views". Not for those suspended for doping.

"She wouldn't have a chance for (a wildcard) from my hands (if I was a tournament director)".

Top-ranked players Angelique Kerber and Andy Murray are among those who have questioned whether Sharapova should be allowed to resume her career in main draws without playing her way back through qualifiers.

In what is the biggest news bombshell in tennis in recent times, tennis great Serena Williams has hinted that she is pregnant.
