Two-time champion Maria Sharapova has missed out on a wild-card entry for the French Open because of her doping ban.

"There can be a wildcard for return from injuries; there cannot be a wildcard for return from doping".

It is also a courageous decision, since it is assumed that Sharapova's absence (along with those of Roger Federer and Serena Williams) will likely translate to lower television ratings and less money being collected at the gates.

It is a courageous stance that will be widely debated and puts Wimbledon in the position of falling into step with the principled French or the raging WTA.

This decision comes just days after tournament director Guy Forget admitted the decision was "very controversial". "It's going to be a very exciting fortnight at Roland Garros", Simon said in a statement.

"Integrity is one of our main commitments. We can't decide to increase funds in the fight against doping and then.(invite her)", Guidicelli said at the time.

El objetivo, aparentemente, era construir 35 mil viviendas de interés social, proyecto que fue nombrado como Ciudadela Don Bosco. Otro de los implicados es Carlos Camacho, quien fungía, entonces, como Jefe de Presupuesto de esa cartera, .

Undoubtedly one of the most popular players at Roland Garros, Federer acknowledged he will "miss the French fans, who have always been so supportive and I look forward to seeing them at Roland Garros next year". "This is not a rock-opera".

"She's smart and savvy", Shriver, who won 21 grand slam women's doubles titles, said on ESPN.

"I apologise for having to withdraw from my match with a left thigh injury", the player said in a statement.

The French Open begins on May 28.

Let's start by making one thing clear: Maria Sharapova is not a drugs cheat.

The 30-year old Russian initially was given a two-year suspension for testing positive for the banned hormone and metabolic modulator meldonium at last year's Australian Open.

Did Sharapova deserve a lengthy suspension? CAS accepted that she had not been "an intentional doper". She cheated, others didn't, and she has to earn her way back by the rules in place.

"I'm very sorry for Maria, very sorry for her fans", said Giudicelli.

Top-ranked players Angelique Kerber and Andy Murray spoke out against Sharapova receiving wild cards, while Eugenie Bouchard openly called her a “cheater” who should be banned for life.

A lot of people believe the win-win situation would have been a wild-card into the qualifying event, and to let her take her chances. Following the announcement, Russia's most decorated tennis player was provisionally suspended from all tennis-related activities, including the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.

When any sport welcomes back an athlete from a doping suspension, there is always an air of unease, but it is usually business as usual within a few weeks. Moreover, even though the wild cards meeting is being held in the following week, the committee could delay a decision on Sharapova, pending possible results in the tournaments at either Majorca or Edgbaston.

“Must be tough for her, but its the way it is, ” Novak Djokovic said in Rome about the French Open ruling.
