The 5 time Grand Slam champion may return to compete in the sport at the Olympics.

Sharapova currently is suspended for testing positive for the drug meldonium after the Austrslian Open championship.

Sharapova claimed that she had been taking the drug for the past 10 years and was unaware of the WADA ruling this year banning the drug.

There has been no date set for the hearing but according to the Associated Press, Masha is still in the reckoning for the Olympics.
Russian Tennis Federation president Shamil Tarpischev said in a statement “We really hope that Sharapova will still be allowed to take part in the Olympic Games.”
