In an interview to Sports Radio, the 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash commented on the criticism that Maria Sharapova has been getting since going through her doping ban between 2016 and 2017.
“She’s been very hot and cold. Some of the players point to ‘because she’s not allowed to take her drugs anymore,’ that’s why she can’t compete", said Cash. On Alex De Minaur's straight-set loss to Rafael Nadal on Friday at the Australian Open, Cash said that the 19-year-old needs to make progresses: “He needs to find some big weapons.
He’s not going to be a big strong guy, he’s going to have to find other ways (to find power)." On the new Davis Cup format, Cash concluded: “The Davis Cup is non-existent anymore… Until they fix the Davis Cup up to it’s an event that people want to play who cares who is in the team?” ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
