Maria Sharapova's two-year drug ban reduced after appeal: She can compete at Wimbledon
 

The 29-year-old five-time Grand Slam winner tested positive for meldonium at this year's Australian Open and was sentenced to a two-year ban.
But she immediately lodged an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after labeling the decison 'unfairly harsh' and has seen her ban reduced.
Sharapova will now be allowed to return to the court on April 26, 2017 - in time to compete at next year's Wimbledon which begins on June 27 - and just four weeks before the French Open in Paris.
