TENNIS- Russian former world number one Maria Sharapova is all set to return to the tour after accepting wildcard entry to play at the Mallorca Open.

“I’m very happy... to announce that I’m going to accept the wild card to play the Mallorca Open,” the 32-year-old said in a statement.

“I want to thank the tournament for the opportunity it gives me and all my incredible fans who have been supporting me in recent months.”

Sharapova has not played since she withdrew from a second-round match at the WTA St Petersburg Ladies Trophy in January because of a shoulder injury.
