Sharapova to miss Rio Olympics
Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova will miss the Rio Olympics after her doping appeal was postponed until September by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
She was given a two-year suspension in June after testing positive for the banned substance meldonium.
Sharapova appealed to CAS but both the 29-year-old Russian and the International Tennis Federation need more time to prepare their cases.
The Rio Olympics start on 5 August.
