Re: Does Sharapova get a protected ranking for Roland Garros?

Sharapova has made the MDs for Roland Garros and Wimbledon based on her ranking, which at the time, was in the 50s when the entries were made.

She has a protected ranking and will use it in order to enter the American hardcourt tournaments. (Maybe even the Fall events if she doesn't raise her ranking by then).

Re: Does Sharapova get a protected ranking for Roland Garros?

It will be interesting to see in who's section Sharapova winds up in
When is the draw?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Does Sharapova get a protected ranking for Roland Garros?

I looked it up, and you can't use the protected ranking either for Grand Slam tournaments, or to be seeded at a tournament.
And you can only use it a maximum of eight times.

Of course you can use a Protected Ranking to enter a Grand Slam tournament.
