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.

What are your thoughts?
