Wildcard rules could be reviewed as Sharapova prepares to return

Maria Sharapova

The rules on wildcards handed to players who have been suspended could be reviewed in the wake of Maria Sharapova’s return from a doping ban, says the head of women’s tennis.

But WTA chief Steve Simon says it would be unfair to “wipe out a career’s worth of work”, by changing the rules.

The Russian has been given wildcards to April’s Porsche Grand Prix and May’s tournaments in Madrid and Rome.
