Sharapova and her uneventful return 2

The former world number one tennis player successfully applied for a reduced sentence and will return in April 2017, but since she stopped playing until now, women's tennis has had many big changes.

The final penalty for Maria Sharapova after she was found positive for meldonium in January 2016 was a 15-month ban from competition.

The last time Sharapova played an official match was when she was eliminated by Serena Williams in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open.

Sharapova lost to Serena in the last official match.

The world of women’s tennis is generally in a post-Williams phase.

However, what threatens Sharapova’s success when she returns is the wave of female tennis players who are rising strongly on the WTA scoreboard.

When Sharapova played her last match at the Australian Open, Karolina Pliskova and Madison Keys were both far from the top 10, and Johanna Konta was not well known.

Kerber, a tennis player who was once considered unremarkable in his playing style, burst onto the scene this year and ranked number one in the world.

Kerber will be a formidable opponent for Sharapova when she returns.

Pliskova, a player whose playing style is more similar to Sharapova in terms of intelligence, was defeated by Kerber in the US Open final.

Sharapova could face a similar problem if she faces Kerber.

World number four Muguruza is also in this group.

In the remaining group, players who possess a strong serve and like to finish their opponents quickly, Pliskova and Madison Keys are the ones who stand out.

Serena is also someone who likes a strong style of fighting, solving her opponent in just one shot.

Sharapova and her uneventful return

Sharapova will take a lot of time to adapt to the changes in women’s tennis when she returns.

When Sharapova returns, one of her strengths will no longer be the same, which is the aura surrounding her presence.

Sharapova is someone who always keeps her distance from colleagues and opponents, which will also make her path back to tennis difficult.
