The organisers will have mixed feelings on this but commercial interests will prevail. It also depends on who else is on their WC bench.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

Since she signed up for an exho during the qualifier week...maybe she got good news from Craig. I can't see her slogging out 3 matches, only to falter in R1 if her body holds up. And a lot of qualifiers are no pushovers.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

It is hard to believe she'd fly all the way to Australia for an exhibition. She must know something.

The exhibition sign-up is a free option with no downside. She can always cancel an exhibition commitment. The organisers don’t mind cause it generates buzz even if she doesn’t show up in the end.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

She has fourth round points to defend (beat defending champion last year) and is a former champion. Even though I think the doping totally tarnishes her career and she should have gotten no wildcards when she first came back, at this point she seems like a pretty logical choice for the organizers. At this point it's due to injury rather than drugs anyway, so not very hard to defend the choice for the tournament and it would be rather bizarre to have her in qualies. I'd love to see it though .

I expect her to get a WC although it would be funny because the AO is the only tournament she officially cheated in.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

I don't like this whatsoever but it's pretty likely they'll give her a WC.
It's an absolute mess the way her career has turned out with her health always getting in the way, that any handouts are real "sympathy" points if anything.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

It would be redicoules if she didn't get a wildcard. She is still one of the most popular players on tour! No doubt about that.

Wouldn't be surprised if she gets a WC and be drawn against Aussie Kim in R1

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

Who are TA going to snub though if she gets a WC?

There's only 5 WCs after the French/USO reciprocal + Asia-Pacific playoff, then Kim is probably getting one if she requests for it. So 4 left.

Then, those playing in the FC final are probably getting one too (Sharma, Hon). Gavrilova too. So out of Birrell, Inglis, Aiava, Cabrera, Hives... and Sharapova.

If Sharma makes DA then I think Maria will probably get one. Otherwise I can't see only 3 Aussies getting WCs... but I wouldn't be surprised if Maria gets one either way.

When is the cut-off date for AO 2020?
Checking to see if other players will make the qualifying cut.

Not like she will be a threat, she take her cheque and thrashing and get out of there probably
