Maria Sharapova’s a Cheater
… Ban Her for Life!

Sharapova returned to pro tennis Wednesday after serving a 15 month suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.
But Bouchard — a 2014 Wimbledon finalist — told TRT World that Sharapova got off wayyyy too easy.Â
“She’s a cheater and so to me … I donâ€™t think a cheater in any sport should be allowed to play that sport again,” Bouchard said.
“Itâ€™s so unfair to all the other players who do it the right way and are true. So, I think from the WTA it sends the wrong message to young kids — cheat and weâ€™ll welcome you back with open arms.”
“I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s right and … [she’s] definitely not someone I can say I look up to anymore because that’s definitely ruined it for me a little bit.â€
