Sharapova's Wimbledon hopes to be decided in late June: Reports

IANS logoIANS 09-05-2017

Local reports said that the Lawn Tennis Association has not yet decided which players will be granted a wildcard to compete at next month's Aegon Classic in Birmingham, reports Xinhua news agency.

Under Women's Tennis Association (WTA) rules, former World No.1s and ex-major champions are entitled to receive unlimited wildcards into events run by the body which controls the women's world tour.

However, the WTA does not hold jurisdiction over Grand Slam events such as Wimbledon, which are run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
