Federer on Sharapova suspension: ‘It’s about zero tolerance’

Roger Federer said he supports “zero tolerance” against doping and showed no sympathy for Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova, who was slapped a two-year ban after testing positive for the prohibited medication meldonium. Sharapova had been taking the medication for 10 years and said last March she hadn’t realized it was no longer allowed. Meldonium was added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substance list in January. Federer said, “…you have to scare away the people who think they could cheat.”
