Five-time winner in the grand slam Maria Sharapova has announced that she has withdrawn from tennis.

Maria Sharapova looks great on her career at the age of 32, with the last and greatest success being when she qualified for the second time at the French Open (Roland-Garros) in 2014. I last saw this year’s Australian Open, which was beaten more in the first round by Donna Vekic. Shortly afterwards, Maria Sharapova announced that she was playing tennis.

She is hugely popular, dating to 17-years-old in 2004, when she defeated Serena Williams at the Wimbledon Final. It climbed to the top of the world rankings for the first time in 2005. But in 2016, Maria Sharapova gave a positive doping test to ban stimulant Meldonium, thanks to what she had banned for 15 months. After these 15 months have passed, she go back to tennis, but she is not able to achieve the results from the beginning of her career.
