Maria Sharapova will find out appeal decision in October

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) – Maria Sharapova will find out next month if her appeal against a two-year doping ban has been successful.

The Russian tennis star was banned in June after testing positive for meldonium at the Australian Open. She appealed the ruling to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

In a statement today, CAS says it will issue its decision in the first week of October.
