Maria Sharapova Hopes to Play in the Rio Olympics
Maria Sharapova wears a chic sundress as she grabs lunch at Il Pastaio on Tuesday (June 21) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Earlier that week, the 29-year-old tennis pro stepped out for ice cream with her coach Sven Groeneveld and a friend.
Maria filed an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport seeking to overturn or reduce her suspension imposed by the International Tennis Federation, according to ESPN. Maria was recently suspended for two years from the sport after she failed a drug test back in January.
The court will issue its ruling by July 18 the latest. If the suspension is thrown out, Maria will be able to compete at the Rio Olympics, which open on August 5.
