Sharapova and is hoping to learn of a decision by July 18.
In the release:
In her appeal to the CAS, Ms Sharapova seeks the annulment of the Tribunal’s decision to sanction her with a two-year period of ineligibility further to an anti-doping rule violation. Ms Sharapova submits that the period of ineligibility should be eliminated, or in the alternative, reduced.
The parties have agreed to an expedited procedure which will allow the CAS to render a decision, at the latest, on 18 July 2016. The final decision will be announced and published by CAS when it is available.
No decision has been made if there will be an actual hearing on the case, or if CAS will review the ruling on its own.
CAS could reduce the ban to six months (or fewer) thus allowing Sharapova to compete in the August Olympics (ban begins retroactively to January 26).
