Quote:
(Newser) – "I'm saying goodbye." And with that, Maria Sharapova on Wednesday ended a 28-year tennis career that included five Grand Slam singles titles, an Olympic silver medal, and a suspension for her use of a banned substance. The 32-year-old Russian was the highest-earning women’s athlete from 2004 to 2015, the year she took home $30 million with tournament wins and endorsements from Nike and Evian, per the New York Times. Then came a two-year ban for taking meldonium, a drug used to improve blood flow in heart patients. The ban was ultimately reduced to 15 months on Sharapova's explanation that she'd used the drug for a decade owing to a magnesium deficiency and family history of diabetes, and wasn't aware it had been banned a month before she failed a drug test.

Once that Meldonium got banned and her ass got busted and she couldn't use it; she couldn't win jack shit.

This is a warning for anyone who accused the Williams sisters and Amelie Mauresmo who are naturally muscular of doping while 'feminine" looking players like Dopa are actually doing the doping.

To quote Michael Smith (during an airing of his show with Jemelle Hill on ESPN) about Serena vs. Sharapova, "That is not a rivalry. That is a misunderstanding!"

Maria Sharapova leaves a lasting, but complex, tennis legacy

Maria Sharapova's legacy is a polarizing one, for fans and fellow players
It's hard to look back at Sharapova's career without acknowledging her divisive personality and suspension.

"She’s one of only six women in the Open era to have won a Career Slam. The other five women to do it are Margaret Court, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams".

It reminds me of my second gif posted above when Serena shaded the dog shit out of the WTA and Dinara Safina.

The last 25 second of this video is LIFE!
