One failed drug test is costing international tennis star Maria Sharapova millions of sponsorship dollars.
"A few days ago I received a letter from the ITF that I had failed a drug test at the Australian Open. I did fail the test, and I take full responsibility for it," Sharapova said during a press conference.
Nike has announced it will suspend its sponsorship with her "while the investigation continues." The company is reportedly her most lucrative sponsor.
