Caroline Wozniacki decides against entering Roland Garros qualifying despite wildcard being unlikely

Caroline Wozniacki has decided against playing Roland Garros qualifying seemingly in a bid to either get a wildcard or not playing in the latest blow to her Olympic Games bid.
Wozniacki came back to tennis with one of her main purposes to get a spot at the Olympic Games, but snubbed to play in the back end of 2023 which despite her getting her ranking up came back to bite her in her bid for the Olympic Games.
Aside from Indian Wells, she hasn't accrued enough results with Madrid for instance seeing her lose to Sara Errani. She is unlikely to get a wildcard for Rome or Roland Garros so will likely have to go onto grass early to have any Olympic hopes with Nottingham, Berlin and s'Hertogenbosch before cut-off for the top 56. But she is high enough unlike Halep for instance to play qualifying.
Thus far though she has decided against battling for her spot in the draw, instead she has only taken wildcards. Unlike even Emma Raducanu who is relying on players withdrawing more often than not but even in her case has still entered and attempted to get into the draw. The likelihood is that the FFT will give most of the wildcards to French players or reciprocal agreements with other Grand Slams. This means a lot of players who are after these spots are likely out in the cold including Wozniacki. Others who have not entered include Alina Korneeva and Storm Hunter who will likely be out for the rest of the season due to injury so wouldn't play anyway.
