Why Sharapova was banned from tennis?

Sharapova was banned for 2 years by the International Tennis Federation after she was tested positive for a banned substance. Sharapova reasoned that she was using the drug for health issues. She argued that the 2-year ban was rather harsh for her. She said:

“It’s very important for you to understand that for 10 years this medicine was not on WADA’s banned list and I had been legally taking the medicine for the past 10 years,” Sharapova said at the press conference. “But on January 1 the rules had changed and meldonium became a prohibited substance, which I had not known.”

“I have to take full responsibility for it,” she added. “It’s my body, and I’m responsible for what I put into it.”
