Russia’s former world number one Maria Sharapova said she could not wait to return to tennis in April after her drugs ban was reduced to 15 months on Tuesday.
“Tennis is my passion and I have missed it. I am counting the days until I can return to the court,” The 29-year-old told her fans on Facebook.
Sharapova, a five-times grand slam champion, was originally handed a two-year ban – backdated to start on Jan. 26, 2016 – by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) in June following a positive test for the drug meldonium.
