Maria Sharapova claims she ‘fought for truth…see details

Maria Sharapova said she feels vindicated by the reduction of her doping suspension, adding that she “fought hard for the truth” as she prepares to return to tennis after a 15-month ban.

 

 

Russia’s former world No1 was initially barred for two years after testing positive at the 2016 Australian Open for meldonium, a medication she had been taking for 10 years within the rules, but that was reclassified as a banned drug.

She will return at April’s Porsche Grand Prix thanks to a wildcard entry and says she feels she has got her “day job back”.

 

Sharapova fought to overturn the ban, saying she had not been properly advised of the official change, and the court of arbitration for sport cut the ban to 15 months and said in its ruling it did not believe she was “an intentional doper”.

Although I’m at a stage or age in my career where you’re closer to the end than your beginning, you always want to end a chapter in your life on your own terms, in your own voice,”

Sharapova told the ANA Inspiring Women in Sports conference at Mission Hills. “That’s why I fought so hard for the truth to be out.”
