Shock, censure, sympathy: How the tennis fraternity reacted to Maria Sharapova’s doping admission

Five-times grand slam champion Maria Sharapova's failed drug test at this year's Australian Open provoked a flurry of reaction on social media and beyond on Monday.

While most expressed shock and a degree of sympathy for the Russian former world number one, others were less charitable, including three-times grand slam champion Jennifer Capriati.

But many former tennis players showed their support for the Russian star as well, and applauded her for holding the press conference.
