Tennis star Maria Sharapova’s doping ban reduced to 15 months

Tennis star Maria Sharapova has had her two year ban from Tennis reduced to 15 months by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

The Russian tennis star tested positive for banned substance- meldonium in January, and revealed in a press conference she was taking the drug for a medical condition but her ban was widely expected to be reduced as the debate around the drug meldonium continued to rage on.  Sharapova will now be free to compete again professionally in April 2017.
