Maria Sharapova should earn back her place: Andy Murray

Andy Murray

London: Andy Murray does not think Maria Sharapova should be given wild cards into tournaments but understands why the Russian is being welcomed back.

The top seed hammered Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-2, 6-0 to surge into the quarter-finals of the Dubai Championships yesterday.
Murray is one of the sport’s most hardline critics of doping offenders. “I think you should really have to work your way back,” Murray said.

“She (Sharapova) has an opportunity to try to improve her ranking and potentially not need a wild card (for Wimbledon). But then if she doesn’t, that becomes Wimbledon’s decision. I’m sure they’ll think about it and how they feel people will view it and then make the right decision for them.”
