LONDON, May 9 (Xinhua) -- Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova's hopes of featuring this year's Wimbledon Championship will be decided on June 20 when a meeting of tournament organisers is planned, reports said here on Tuesday.

Local reports said that the Lawn Tennis Association has not yet decided which players will be granted a wildcard to compete at next month's Aegon Classic in Birmingham.

Under WTA rules, former world No. 1s and ex-major champions are entitled to receive unlimited wildcards into events run by the body which controls the women's world tour.

However, the WTA does not hold jurisdiction over Grand Slam events such as Wimbledon, which are run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
