Tennis Superstar Maria Sharapova is set to comeback this April following a high profile 15-month suspension from tennis for doping.

Her comeback -- seems so eagerly anticipated -- she was prematurely put in a tournament draw long before her suspension ends.

And, just 24 hours after her suspension expires, Sharapova will immediately see action in court -- tennis court, of course.

Sharapova, the richest female athlete in the world, was slapped with a 2-year suspension after a positive drug test at the Australian Open in January of 2016.

She filed an appeal, and her suspension was subsequently reduced to 15 months.

Sharapova later admitted taking Meldonium, a banned substance, for at least 10 years in her career.

It was for her diabetes, or other health reasons, she claimed.

Meldonium is a performance-enhancing drug. It increases oxygen movement to muscles, and so could enhance stamina and endurance, especially for athletes.

Meldonium was added in the list of banned substances by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in January 2016.

An alarming number of athletes had been using this drug, intentionally to enhance performance, it was revealed recently.

There were already at least 124 cases of positive drug tests for Meldonium on the WADA list -- and is growing.

Maria Sharapova will compete for the first time, after her doping ban, in April at the Porsche Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany.

The tournamnet kicks off April 22, 2017 -- 3 days before Sharapova's suspension ends.

Just 24 hours later, she will be out on Porsche Arena's clay court for action.

Tennis anti-doping rules prohibit suspended players from being granted accreditation or access to tournaments.

But ludicrously, there are no clear or specific rules prohibiting Sharapova -- or any suspended players, for that matter -- from being placed in the draw, and wait until their suspension expires.

Regardless, Sharapova expressed excitement to be back in action.

'I could not be happier to have my first match back on tour,' said the 5-Time Grand Slam Champion.

  31. Narcopaths (malignant narcissists, narcissistic sociopath) are masters at playing mind games. They play to win and take no prisoners. They are sore losers and if they don't win they will often react in a fit of rage and stomp away like a little child. I have to say upfront, I am not comfortable calling what a narcopath does to us as games, but I can't think of a better alternative. I used manipulation characterized as games, but that's a mouthful. Anyway, every therapist I've talked with uses the term, so I will, too. When I think of games, I think of fun, laughter and enjoying myself. Nothing about my experience with the narcopath comes even close, so it's hard for me to think of the narcopath and games in the same setting. Polar opposites in my mind. ํ† ํ† ์‚ฌ์ดํŠธ

  32. Facebook is a virtual world with a lot of apps. And they're all different and (sometimes) addictive in their own sense. Top Facebook apps like Farmville, Criminal Case, Texas HoldEm Poker and many more are loved by users, serving as a great past-time, and perhaps, the perfect distraction. Sure, staying online all day to play games is unhealthy and not recommended, but a little indulgence never hurts anyone. As long as you don't have any other work. Therefore, here's a list of the games you should try out if you're free, online and bored. ๋ฉ”์ด์ €๋†€์ดํ„ฐ ์ถ”์ฒœ
