Former British tennis player hopes to see Sharapova back on court

Former British tennis player Barry Cowan hopes to see shamed Maria Sharapova back on the tennis court sooner rather than later. The five-time Grand Slam winner admitted to failing a drugs test on Monday and will be provisionally suspended by the International Tennis Federation from March 12. Speaking exclusively to Sports Tonight, Cowan, though, believes Sharapova didn’t intentionally seek to obtain an unfair advantage and therefore hopes the punishment reflects that.
