Maria Sharapova will not play at the French Open after organizers did not grant her wildcard entry into the tournament, which begins later this month.

Sharapova recently returned from a 15-month doping ban after admitting she had used the banned hormone and metabolic modulator meldonium.
The French Open draw was already missing one of its biggest stars as the pregnant Serena Williams takes time out before the birth of her first child.

The two-time French Open winner had hoped to build up enough ranking points to automatically qualify for the Roland Garros event, which begins on May 22, but defeat to Kiki Mladenovic in the semifinal of the Stuttgart Open in April left her fate in the hands of the French Tennis Federation.

Sharapova is currently ranked No. 211 in the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) world rankings.
Sharapova received wildcard entry to the Rome Masters this week where a first round win over Christina McHale ensured she will make the qualifying rounds for Wimbledon next month.

As things stand, a run to the semis in the Italian Capital would guarantee her position in the main draw at the All England Club.

Sharapova is one of the most marketable stars in tennis and the former World No.1 was estimated to be worth up to $195 million back in 2016.
