Sea, friends and good humor: the forced holidays of Maria Sharapova

Sea, friends and good humor: the forced holidays of Maria Sharapova

Let's see in June, calmly. Another two months at Maria Yamarova's bath marijuana, which was positive for the meldonio (Russian sport has no peace: two cyclists and a palliotist have been caught yesterday by the same substance) at the last Australian Open.

Russian Federtennis President Shamil Tarpischev said the champion could be heard at the hearing by the doping committee that will decide on disqualification (risked two to four years of stop) not before two months. Sharapova has always argued that he had taken the medication for medical reasons and did not know that the drug had been banned since January 1, 2016. Tarpischev told Tass that the tennis player "could be put on trial in June," adding but "to have no official information, my opinion is only an opinion." Federtennis's No. 1 added that he was in constant contact with Sharapova: "Mary has not stopped for a moment, is continuing to train."

Sharapova's Instagram profile (1.5 million followers), however, shows that not only tennis - legitimately - is made of the days of the Russian that a weekend getaway (Cabo San Lucas?), By airplane private and friend Chelsea Handler, a comedian, writer and well-known television broadcaster in the US ("Chelsea Lately" is the most cynical and irreverent night show of the late American night). In the meantime, besides the positive comments and compliments, there are also insults, criticisms, and acid jokes.

An example? "Legs at the Meldonius" posted next to the picture of Maria sunbathing. In this photo, Sharapova leaving on private plane with his friend Chelsea Handler (Instagram)
