"Are you serious?": Pavlyuchenkova asked if she will ask about Wimbledon wildcard after Roland Garros run

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova scored a big win over Elise Mertens at Roland Garros (French Open) on Sunday and she was asked whether she'll ask Wimbledon for a wild card.

Last year's Wimbledon edition banned all Russian and Belarusian athletes from the event but this year's edition will permit their participation. As a native Russian, Pavlyuchenkova will be permitted to play and she was asked whether she'll ask the event of a wild card due to her ranking to which simply burst out laughing.

She responded:

"Are you serious, after what happened last year? Actually, you're right, I'll ask and let you know at the next press conference. Fingers crossed.
