LAUSANNE, Switzerland – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said on Tuesday it would issue its decision in the arbitration procedure between Maria Sharapova and the International Tennis Federation (ITF) during the first week of October.

On June 9, Sharapova filed an appeal against the decision issued on June 6 by a Tribunal appointed by the ITF.

In her appeal to the CAS, Sharapova seeks a reduction of the Tribunal’s decision to sanction her with a two-year period of ineligibility further to an anti-doping rule violation.

The final award will be published on the CAS website together with a media release.
