The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has announced that their decision in Maria Sharapova’s appeal of her 2-year ban will be announced 9am ET on Tuesday.

Sharapova hasn’t played a match since losing to Serena Williams in the Australian Open quarterfinals. In March, Sharapova announced she had failed a drug test at the Australian Open and admitted to using the banned substance meldoniunm.

In June, Sharapova was given a 2-year ban from the sport. She subsequently filed an appeal with CAS however their decision has twice been delayed.

Sharapova has already served eight full months of the ban, so if the CAS rules a ban eight months or less, then Sharapova should be reinstated to the tour immediately.

The 29-year-old is currently ranked No. 95 on the WTA.

Since Nole is good with Maria (according to mat4 too good;) I’ll post this here for Nole fans, this is the place where everything started for Nole and where became tennis addict, lat time he was there was there was in 1998 and know he is revisiting and revoking his childhood memories with family and his closest friends, have a look at video, don’t bother reading since it is Serbian article, Nole is explaning in English about famous “The Tennis Wall” where career of one of the greatest tennis players ever started, it could be soul searching..maybe? Have a look:
