Sharapova granted Birmingham wildcard



Maria Sharapova has been granted a wildcard for next month's WTA grasscourt event in Birmingham, a key Wimbledon warm-up, organisers said on Thursday.

The decision came just a day after the Russian former world No 1 was refused a wildcard for the French Open following her 15-month ban for doping.

"Five-time Grand Slam Champion Maria Sharapova has been named as the first of seven Main Draw singles wild cards for this summer’s British WTA grass court events organised by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA)," said a statement.
