While it’s a sensitive topic right now, several players both past and present took to twitter to voice their disappointment over Maria Sharapova’s bombshell announcement yesterday that she failed a drug test at the Australian Open.
In addition to Jennifer Capriati’s rant, here are others:
Very disappointed waking up to hear the news about @MariaSharapova …

Au passage pour les sceptiques, le cas Sharapova prouve bien que les meilleurs ne sont absolument pas protégés en cas de contrôle positif

I do not want to see @MariaSharapova career end on an honest mistake.

@MariaSharapova handled today like a true champion. Very classy of her after an honest mistake

Doesn't look that innocent for Sharapova or whoever else took it, this Meldonium stuff but who knows? https://t.co/IBqop5ggHZ

Wow. Classy of @MariaSharapova to hold a press conference for this and admit making a mistake. Definitely agree that have to be aware though

Sharapova failed a drugs test. Not sure what to make of that.

“If I was going 2 announce my retirement, it wouldn’t b in a downtown Los Angeles hotel with a fairly ugly carpet." Sharapova. Standards 💜

Maria handled the press conference with class, however all pro athletes should be well aware of what they are taking.

Maria handled that so well. In my opinion, honest mistake from a great champion.
