Maria Sharapova denied a wild card invitation to French Open

  • Maria Sharapova posed for a number

Maria Sharapova broke seven times to win her opening match at the Rome Masters on Monday, with the Russian wild card advancing over American Christina McHale 6-4, 6-2.

French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli - who has previously said the French Open is "bigger than the players" - will inform Sharapova shortly before the decision is made public. Sharapova is playing Rome for the ninth time, winning the title in 2011, 2012 and two years ago; the 30-year-old owns 11 WTA tour-level titles on clay.

But it was something else that stumped Sharapova during a press conference after her first round win over Christina McHale at the Italian Open in Rome.

This approach has led to criticism from those who think Sharapova should have to regain her ranking points before being allocated spots in major tournaments.

Eighteen-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has announced he will not participate in the French Open.

Sharapova is continuing her ascent back up the rankings after serving a 15-month drug ban. As aforementioned, the duo met last week in the first round at the Mutua Madrid Open, which Sharapova came back from a set down to dispatch the Croat, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0.

"I know the media dimension Maria has". "I appreciate the media impact of Maria, I appreciate the broadcasters' expectations but in conscience, it was not possible to go beyond the anti-doping code and beyond the application of the rules".

Lucic-Baroni had a tough first round encounter with 2015 French Open finalist Lucie Safarova. Today that suspension is over and she can take her path towards the new success. "It certainly took a few more games than I would've liked to get used to but once I did, I felt like I took care of the second set quite well". Sharapova had been taking meldonium for many years, but overlooked announcements by WADA that it added the drug to its banned list on January 1, 2016.

The Croatian has been really impressive, but a cause for concern for her will be the fact that she already lost to Sharapova this year at the Madrid Open. She was a past champion at all three.

At the start, McHale was able to run down balls in the corners and make Sharapova play extra shots, which she often missed.
