Former Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova says she will not request a wildcard into this year's championships and will attempt to qualify instead. The 30-year-old returned last month from a 15-month doping ban, but has not yet managed to earn a high enough ranking to enter directly into the main Wimbledon draw.
