Maria Sharapova Fails Drug Test - Athlete Guilty of Using Hard Drugs?

Statement: World Anti-Doping Agency on the Court of Arbitration for Sport deciding to reduce the sanction on Maria Sharapova: 'WADA respects all decisions taken by CAS, the highest independent sport tribunal which has the jurisdiction to determine sports-related appeals. WADA recognizes that CAS fully scrutinized all available information and evidence in Ms. Sharapova's appeal and imposed what it deemed to be an appropriate sanction under the World Anti-Doping Code.'

In another development just now, WTA CEO Steve Simon says Maria Sharapova, who will have to rebuild her ranking, will be entitled to 'unlimited' wild cards based on her record.
