Maria Sharapova has won an appeal against a 2-year ban at Court of Arbitration for Sport. The court reduced the ban from two years to 15 months.

Maria Sharapova was banned in March for two years by the International Tennis Federation for using a prohibited drug.

The Russian was provisionally banned after testing positive for meldonium at January's Australian Open.

With this judgement, Sharapova is eligible to return to the court on the 26th of April 2017.
