Tennis player Maria Sharapova will play for Russia in 2017, said the captain of the women’s national team Anastasia Myskina.
True for Maria! Sharapova has reduced the punishment for Meldonium
According to her, the team finished play at the Federation Cup before returning to Sharapova, reports TASS. “The second Cup match in April will be before the tournament in Stuttgart and she is suspended only during this tournament,” Myskina said, adding that therefore, by the rules it cannot be claimed this year.
Recall, Sharapova was disqualified in January last year because of doping. It turned out that the athlete had used “Mildronate” by prescription, not knowing that in its composition contains Meldonium.
The first player was suspended for two years, but later the sentence was reduced. Sharapova herself said that he considers the days to come on the court.
