Maria Sharapova will appeal a two-year ban for doping imposed by the International Tennis Federation on Wednesday, she said on her Facebook page.

“The ITF spent tremendous amounts of time and resources trying to prove I intentionally violated the anti-doping rules and the tribunal concluded I did not,” she wrote.

“I will immediately appeal the suspension portion of this ruling to CAS, the Court of Arbitration for Sport.”
