1. Five-times grand slam champ Maria Sharapova fails drug tests
The former world No. 1 tested positive at the Australian Open in January for Meldonium, a drug which was only recently added to the banned substances list. "It's very important for you to understand that for 10 years this medicine was not on WADA's banned list and I had been legally taking the medicine for the past 10 years," Sharapova said at a press conference in LA. Meldonium has been banned after evidence showed athletes were using it to enhance performance.

In an opinion piece published by The Australian today, Credlin said the rumours swirling amidst the release of Niki Savva's book, Road to Ruin, were "completely false, utterly untrue, unfounded and wrong."
