Maria Sharapova's Doping Ban from Tennis Reduced: Maria Sharapova will be eligible to return to competitive tennis in April after the Court of Arbitration for Sport reduced her doping ban from two years to 15 months. Sharapova tested positive for the banned heart medication meldonium at this year's Australian Open. The court ruled Sharapova bore "some degree of fault" but "less than significant fault." She's now eligible to return a month ahead of the French Open in 2017.

This is not really about fairness and due process.

It's more about the fear of pissing off Maria's friend.
