Venus WilliamsMaria SharapovaJustine Henin Maria Sharapova will not play at the French Open. The announcement comes 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. She admitted using the banned hormone and metabolic modulator meldonium. The drug was only banned at the beginning of 2016, but Sharapova said she took it for over 10 years as she was magnesium deficient.
