Maria Sharapova will learn the result of her appeal against a two-year doping ban in the first week of October.

The five-time grand slam champion announced in March she tested positive for meldonium at the Australian Open.

A two-year ban was imposed in June, back-dated to January, and she appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, seeking a reduction.
