Maria Sharapova said Friday she will not request a wildcard for Wimbledon, instead opting to play in qualifying for the Grand Slam she won in 2004, as she returns from a doping ban. The Russian former world number one was this week refused a wildcard for the French Open following her 15-month ban for taking meldonium. "Because of my improved ranking after the first three tournaments of my return, I will also be playing the qualifying of Wimbledon in Roehampton, and will not be requesting a wildcard into the main draw," said Sharapova on her website.

Why does it show Jack Sock as having to defend 45 points. I don't see where he played any of these 3 tourneys last year. Thanks for the explanation.
