The three-time Internazionali BNL D'Italia champion Maria Sharapova has received a wildcard entry into the main draw of the tournament in Rome this year.

The 29-year-old will attempt to reclaim the title she last won in 2015 as she continues her return to the WTA circuit. The tournament, which takes place from May 15-21, will be her third this year after she picked up wildcards for Stuttgart and Madrid this spring.

Sharapova beat Spain's Carla Suárez Navarro, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1, in the final on her last appearance two years ago, to win her most recent WTA title.
