Russia's Ekaterina Makarova beat Italian Roberta Vinci 6-2 6-1 to secure a second-round match against fourth seed Dominika Cibulkova.
The qualifying tournament is held the week before Wimbledon in Roehampton while Sharapova will find out on Tuesday whether she has been handed a wildcard to this month's French Open in a Facebook Live broadcast at 6pm BST.
French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli - who has previously said the French Open is "bigger than the players" - will inform Sharapova shortly before the decision is made public.
In Rome, Maria Sharapova went on an adventure to the Colosseum for an incredible photo-op, and a stage for some dancing (if you follow her on Instagram, you caught it).
"She might be very disappointed, but it's my responsibility to protect the game", Giudicelli added. Maybe they should give a wild card to Lance Armstrong, too? 'Nobody can deprive her two titles she won here in Roland Garros.
Although Sharapova said she was unaware of her status for Wimbledon, the tournament's officials have apparently been highly aware of her potential presence at its qualifying event. But nevertheless Roland Garros invests a lot - along with the other Grand Slams, the ATP, and the WTA - into the fight against doping.

She has played three tournaments thanks to wild cards since her return from a 15-month drug ban last month.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport reduced the ban on appeal, ruling she bore "less than significant fault" in the case and she could not "be considered to be an intentional doper". "It certainly took a few more games than I would've liked to get used to but once I did, I felt like I took care of the second set quite well".
She reached the semi-finals in Stuttgart but was beaten by Eugenie Bouchard in Madrid.
French Open organisers had been unsure of giving Sharapova a wildcard to the tournament, in light of the potential backlash the tournament would receive in being considered to condone the use of a banned substance, or condoning doping entirely. This will be a hard-hitting match on the clay courts at the Foro Italico in Rome but the three-time champion should get over the line and reach the third round. Sharapova beat the Croat in three last week in Madrid. She has now earned enough ranking points to enter the qualifying draw of Wimbledon on her own.
"I know it does seem very convenient timing, but it is actually unrelated, genuinely unrelated", said Lewis, according to the BBC. It was inconceivable to take a decision that would have been the opposite of this. I know the way the real world works, and this is the way the real world works.
