Episode 1710: Maria’s Empire, Magic Meldonium, US Murph Talks About His Favourite Baseball Player’s Secret Double Life, Europa League Pushes The Boat Out
Maria Sharapova was the highest-earning female sportsperson in the world for 11 years, she won 5 Grand Slams, she was one of the most instantly recognisable faces in tennis… so why did her peers dislike her so much?
We talk to Caitlin Thompson of Racquet Magazine about Sharapova’s career, her relationship with her colleagues on tour, the 15 month ban for using meldonium, which is a PED, and why Caitlin herself decided to take meldonium for a period of time, and the effect it had on her own tennis game!
