Sharapova given US Open wildcard

Russian player Maria Sharapova has been awarded a wildcard for the main draw of this year's US Open.

This is the first Grand Slam the 30-year-old has been given a main draw pass since returning to action in April following a 15-month drugs ban.

She was denied wildcard for the French Open and did not request one for this year's Wimbledon, which she missed through injury.

The five-time Grand Slam winner and former world number one is ranked 148.
