" When there are more people on a team, each has its own task. I worked with the doctor and I told my manager to check all the banned drugs, it was the end of 2015 and he had personal problems.

He didn't and we know how it turned out. It was a serious mistake. The ITF accused me that I was hiding from taking Meldonium, but in reality I never did that, it was very painful and I felt vulnerable. I've always been ready to fight for what I consider my right.

When the court disagreed with the ITF I felt free, the truth is that I never hid to take the Meldonium."
I received an email from the International Tennis Federation, usually they sent simple emails, but this one in particular talked about doping and mentioned a drug called Meldonium.

I went to the dictionary to look for that substance, I did not know that substance perfectly, then I read Miteronato and I understood everything, I knew what it was. As a young man I started taking it because I was suffering from health, my father looked for a doctor in Russia (he did it for my safety) but that doctor had no great experience with athletes.

In Russia he gave me this drug that can be taken without a prescription, like aspirin. I was tested from 2006 to 2015 and I never had any problems, then in 2016 in January I receive this news and find out that the Meldonium has become illegal.

Honestly it was really disappointing to find out that other federations have warned of this thing while nobody has warned me."
" After the press conference where I had to go out in front of everyone, I decided to delete all social networks from my phone, I had to protect myself and protect my sanity.

I remember my mother telling me that nothing would happen if I couldn't play tennis anymore, but at that moment I felt very small. He spent several weeks with me sleeping and accompanying me."

There is one person responsible for what she put into her own body: herself.

:eek: OMG, who would believe she's an extremely generous, forgiving, merciful, kind lady?

In such circumstances and considering the subsequent huge damages to the public profile, 99,99% of the players would instantly fire the alleged culprit...











... chill down, girls, just jockin' :ROFLMAO:

If true, that is unfortunate. But let it be a lesson for tennis players and other athletes: to check any of the most serious stuff on your own.

It's really pathetic! Despicable Masha comes out again, with with yet another deplorable interview.
Everyone else is to be blamed for her swallowed Meldonium ...but not her!
She is still distressed and embittered and still doesn't address the core of the problem: she definitely needs a shrink and possibly (another) rehab stage.

She didn't do a new interview. All of this is from her documentary released 3 years ago.

When you have a huge brand like Sharapova had, the #1 woman in sponsorships for over 10 years, you cant afford this, to have the integrity of your sports results questioned.
I also thought Eisenbud has to tell her there was a change to the banned drug list.
If I was an agent to a sports marketing star, that would be something I paid attention to. Think what it would mean if Nadal failed a drug test. You cant afford any risk there.
But now a few years have passed and she should move on. The baseball ARod was a drug cheat and he is getting a lot of work now
Date a celebrity!
