quote:The decision not to give two-time winner Maria Sharapova a French Open wildcard has been criticised by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA).
The Russian, 30, was ranked too low to gain direct entry as she continues her return from a 15-month drugs ban.
The French Tennis Federation (FFT) said their "mission to protect the high standards" of tennis was the reason.
"I don't agree with the basis for their decision. She has complied with the sanction," said WTA chief Steve Simon.
"There are no grounds to penalise any player beyond the sanctions set forth in the final decisions resolving these matters."
Sharapova needed a wildcard to play in either the main draw or the qualifying tournament.
But on Monday, FFT chief Bernard Giudicelli Ferrandini said: "There can be a wildcard for the return from injuries - there cannot be a wildcard for the return from doping.
"I'm very sorry for Maria, very sorry for her fans. They might be very disappointed, she might be very disappointed, but it's my responsibility, my mission, to protect the high standards of the game played without any doubt on the result."
Shortly after learning of her Roland Garros snub, Sharapova withdrew injured from her second-round Italian Open match against Mirjana Lucic-Baroni.
Sharapova returned to action without a ranking last month and has since risen to 211 in the world after receiving wildcards in Stuttgart, Madrid and Rome.
That will be enough to at least earn a qualifying spot at Wimbledon next month.
Sharapova needed to reach the semi-finals of the Italian Open to qualify for Wimbledon's main draw but retired in the second round on Tuesday when leading Lucic-Baroni 4-6 6-3 2-1.
"I apologise for having to withdraw from my match with a left thigh injury," she said. "I will be getting all the necessary examinations to make sure it is not serious."
Sharapova will now have to wait until 20 June to discover whether she is among the wildcards at the All England Club.
The former world number one has not played a Grand Slam since she tested positive for heart disease drug meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open.
That brought an initial two-year ban, later reduced to 15 months after the Court of Arbitration for Sport found she was not an "intentional doper".
Ja nou en, dat betekent toch niet dat ze automatisch recht heeft op allerlei voordeeltjes. Die moeten haar gegund worden, ze heeft geen abonnement erop afgesloten.quote:"I don't agree with the basis for their decision. She has complied with the sanction," said WTA chief Steve Simon.
