Sharapova, who has won three grand-slam titles, returned to singles play last month after a nine-month layoff with a shoulder injury.

She participated at the Warsaw Open before reaching the Roland Garros quarter-finals.

"Why not," Sharapova told Reuters in a television interview earlier this month of her prospects for winning another Wimbledon title.

Sharapova, who won at Wimbledon in 2004, last year was eliminated in the second round by compatriot Alla Kudryavtseva, who was at the time ranked 154th in the world.
