Sharapova to return in Stuttgart….

Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova will make her professional tennis comeback following her doping ban at the Porsche Grand Prix in Stuttgart in April. The former world number one is serving a 15-month ban after testing positive for cardiac drug meldonium last January and is eligible to compete again on 26 April. The tournament starts on 24 April but the 29-year-old, who will enter as a wildcard, will not be allowed to attend until the Wednesday, the day of her first match. “I could not be happier to have my first match back on tour at one of my favourite tournaments,” she said. “I can’t wait to see all my great fans and to be back doing what I love.”
