Maria Sharapova has vowed to ‘rise up again’ after being refused a wildcard for the French Open.

Maria Sharapova is vowing to “rise up again,” a day after she was denied a wild-card entry for the French Open.

On her Twitter feed Wednesday, Sharapova posted: “If this is what it takes to rise up again, then I am in it all the way, everyday. No words, games, or actions will ever stop me from reaching my own dreams. And I have many.”

French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli announced on Tuesday that he decided not to invite Sharapova to play at Roland Garros, where the main draw starts on May 28.

She recently returned to the tour after serving a 15-month doping ban.

The two-time French Open champion didn’t comment about Giudicelli’s ruling on Tuesday.
