Maria Sharapova has released a statement on social media responding to the decision not to award her a wildcard for the French Open.

Maria Sharapova has released a statement on social media following yesterday's announcement from the Fédération Française de Tennis that she will not receive a wildcard into the French Open.

"If this is what it takes to rise up again, then I am in it all the way, every day," she wrote. "No words, games, or actions will ever stop me from reaching my own dreams. And I have many."

Sharapova, 30, a two-time French Open champion, had hoped to receive a wildcard for Roland Garros following her return from suspension for a violation of anti-doping rules.

She has played WTA tournaments in Stuttgart, Madrid and Rome and was forced to retire through injury from her match against Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in the second round of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia yesterday.
