Doper, cheater and now quitter María Sharapova quits tennis



María Doperpova has had a dope career spanning over 19 years . Notable wins include: Grand Slam titles: 5 Tour-level titles: 36 Australian Open: Winner (2008) French Open: Winner (2012, 2014) Wimbledon: Winner (2004) US Open: Winner (2006).

In March 2016, Doperpova revealed she had failed a drug test at the 2016 Australian Open. She had tested positive for meldonium, a substance that had been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. Doperpova, claimed it was for a heart condition. After a 2 year ban Doperpova had a chance to prove herself. Plagued by shoulder and forearm issues, she would win only one of her 36 titles following her return and would not go beyond the quarter-finals of a major. We don't know how much of her winning career was as a result of meldonium abuse. After her drug ban and without the drug in her system, María returned to the tour and was less than a shadow of her former self.
