Maria Sharapova Talks Preparing for Her Return to Tennis
Great News... Hope to see everyone again real soon!
Maria Sharapova will now be eligible to return to international competition on April 26, 2017, according to a statement from the International Tennis Federation —
Maria is set to make her official return on April 26 after the former world No. 1 was granted a wildcard entry to Stuttgart's Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.
Maria has been keeping fit ahead of her comeback, appearing in a Las Vegas charity event in October 2016, and then playing an exhibition match against Olympic singles champion Monica Puig in Puerto Rico last month.
"I could not be happier to have my first match back on tour at one of my favorite tournaments," said Sharapova, a three-time winner at the annual clay court event.
