If Maria Sharapova is nothing else, she's tenacious. Earlier this year, the five-time Grand Slam champion was handed a two-year ban after failing a drug test at the Australian Open for meldonium (a decision which she is appealing).
Still, nothing has stopped her from being her A-list self. If these Instagram and Twitter pics are anything to go by, Sharapova hasn’t let the ban slow her down—not even a little.
One of the best female players having dinner with one of the best car companies makes for one stunning night.
A tennis champion and successful business woman? Is there anything she can’t do?
A big game and a big heart. What more can you ask for?
It’s not all serious business as she makes time for her Adele fix (And yes, that fedora is Grade A amazing).
The ban has certainly not put a damper on her fashion sense.
A sweet treat for her fans in Franklin, Massachusetts (pun intended).
Ok, long message but when I saw this photo I thought of a Wes Anderson movie. That awkward feeling when you see a line of people for an autograph session in a small town (Franklin!!) at a grocery store (Big Y). I couldn't believe it! You're sitting at a cafe desk with a product shipper next to you and a deck of autograph cards in front of you. Simple, right? Within a few minutes, kids and their families walk up and you spend a couple minutes with each. I know the autographs and pictures are long lasting memories for them, but the moment I get to see their smiles is what makes these trips so special and worthwhile for me. Thanks to everyone that came by today! ❤️❤️
What does Sharapova do without competitive tennis? Go to Harvard. Can someone say #goals?
Don’t let that face fool you, she will chew you up and spit you out as evidenced by this boxing session.
This is the biggest win of them all. Even with her tennis future in jeopardy, she’s still on the court putting in the hours.
Sharapova's appeal with the Court of Sport Arbitration is scheduled for sometime in October. If there is no change to her case, she'll be able to return to competition in 2018.
