Maria Sharapova Will Find Out Her Wimbledon Fate on June 20 Credits:  EXCELLESPORTS.COM The former Wimbledon champion, Maria Sharapova, desires to play in this year’s grand slam tournament. However, the dream of the tennis star to play in this tournament depends on the decision to be made on June 20, in a meeting of tournament organizers. Sharapova has a chance to enter Wimbledon by performing well in the forthcoming tournaments in Rome and Madrid respectively. Maria Sharapova’s 15-month ban for an anti-doping violation ended last week, where she played her first tournament in Stuttgart as a wildcard entrant. She reached the semifinals which helped her to jump to 262 in WTA rankings. It is believed that the former champion still has a chance to climb higher in the rankings by performing well in the next two tournaments to get selected for Wimbledon on merit, or its qualifying tournament at Roehampton.

Philip Brook, the chairman of All England Club, said in a statement, “We have a long-standing tried and tested process (for awarding wildcards) in the week before qualifying and this year is no different. First, we will see if Maria applies for a wildcard and if so we will consider her case alongside everyone else’s.” The Chairman concluded that this would be a decision for the group on the day. Maria Sharapova has already been handed wildcard once again for the tournament in Rome. The event’s conclusion date May 22 is the deadline to be named in the main draw of Wimbledon Championship. On the other hand, the last date for a cut-off entry in the qualifying round on June 5.
