On Wednesday, the International Tennis Federation banned 29-year-old Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova for two years after she tested positive on January 26 for the drug meldonium. The drug was banned on January 1 this year.

Sharapova said she was not aware of the ban and continued to take it after January 1 under a trade name, mildronate. Mildronate or meldonium is a heart disease drug, and Sharapova said she was consuming it for a decade, due to heart concerns and as some of her family members have been diagnosed with diabetes.

Five-time Grand Slam winner Sharapova lost to Serena Williams in this year’s Australian Open quarter-finals. The ban runs until January 26, 2018; she said she would appeal against it to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

She posted on her Facebook account, “Today with their decision of a two year suspension, the ITF tribunal unanimously concluded that what I did was not intentional. The tribunal found that I did not seek treatment from my doctor for the purpose of obtaining a performance enhancing substance.”

The victory was Muguruza’s first Grand Slam title, and improved her world ranking to second behind Williams in women’s tennis. She became Spain‘s first women’s Grand Slam champion since Arantxa Sánchez Vicario won the French Open in 1998.

Muguruza won the first set 7–5, breaking early in the set to grab a 3–2 lead. Williams was down 3–1 early in the second set; the Spaniard completed the set 6–4. For Williams with 22 Grand Slam titles, it was a second consecutive Grand Slam loss.

Muguruza and Williams played in last year’s Wimbledon final, with opposite results — Williams won. After the match, Muguruza said, “I can’t explain with words how this day means to me. You work all your life to get here”. Williams, appearing upset after the loss, thanked her coach and said they would “try again next year.”

In Williams’s first Grand Slam competition this year, she lost the Australian Open final to Angelique Kerber, two sets to one.
