Former world number one Maria Sharapova may never play again following her failed drugs test, the head of the Russian Tennis Federation said.
Shamil Tarpishchev said that Sharapova’s situation is “bad” and that it is “very doubtful” that she will resume her career.
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) provisionally suspended Sharapova on 12 March after she tested positive for Meldonium at January’s Australian Open.
She is waiting to hear the full extent of her punishment, which could be as much as a four-year ban.
