Sharapova to learn fate in October


The Court of Arbitration for Sport will deliver a verdict on Maria Sharapova's appeal against her two-year ban in the first week of October.

Sharapova was handed a two-year ban in June after testing positive for the drug meldonium at the Australian Open, with the suspension backdated to January 26th.

Meldonium, which has been banned since the beginning of 2016, is contained in Mildronate which the Russian said she had been taking for many years to treat magnesium deficiency and potential signs of diabetes.

In a statement CAS confirmed it would issue its decision in the first week of October.

"In her appeal to the CAS, Ms Sharapova seeks a reduction of the tribunal's decision to sanction her with a two-year period of ineligibility further to an anti-doping rule violation," the statement read.

"The final award will be published on the CAS website together with a media release."

Sharapova has not played since her quarter-final defeat to Serena Williams at the Australian Open.
