Madrid - Banned five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova will face French
Open winner Garbine Muguruza on a half clay-half grass court exhibition
in Madrid on December 2.
Sharapova is not free to compete on the WTA Tour until at least April
2017 despite having a doping ban for banned medication meldonium cut
from 24 to 15 months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) earlier
The Russian made her return to the court for the first time since
receiving the ban for testing positive at the Australian Open in January
in a light-hearted exhibition featuring Martina Navratilova and John
McEnroe in aid of the Elton John AIDS Foundation in Las Vegas last week.
