. As analysts we do the same thing, so here are some observations from week one. First there were two major upsets. I should say, major upsets in the eyes of the fans and prognosticators.The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has defended its handling of Maria Sharapovas drugs ban for meldonium. The administrator of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme denied it had sought a four-year ban for the former world No 1 and, in a statement, rejected suggestions by the Russian that its independent tribunal was not neutral.The ITF also emphasised it had not known, prior to this year when the drug was put on the banned list, that meldonium was in common use by eastern European athletes. Five-time Grand Slam winner Sharapova was cleared by the Court of Arbitration for Sport to return to action in April after her two-year suspension was reduced to 15 months on Tuesday.The 29-year-old said then that other sports federations had been more effective at communicating with athletes and hoped the ITF would take note. Sharapova criticised the International Tennis Federation after having her ban for using meldonium reduced to 15 months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport Her lawyer John Haggerty described the ITFs procedure for relaying rule changes as a night and day difference to the vivid and direct warnings from others.The ITF did not try to ban Ms. Sharapova for four years, as has been suggested, the tennis governing body said.

It added: Ms. Sharapova has stated that the Independent Tribunal was not neutral.Ms. Sharapovas legal team was given the opportunity to object to the appointment of any member of that Tribunal in advance of the hearing, and they agreed in writing that they had no such objection.The ITF believed it had taken appropriate steps to publicise changes to the prohibited list and it was not true to say that it was aware of widespread use of meldonium in Eastern Europe and should have given specific notice. Sharapova will be free to return to tennis in April 2017 In fact, it was accepted by Ms. Sharapova in the hearing before CAS that the ITF did not know before 2016 about the extent to which meldonium was used by athletes from any region, or that Ms. Sharapova herself was using meldonium, it said.The ITF pointed out that the WADA monitoring programme is conducted anonymously and WADA does not inform any anti-doping organisation about the prevalence of such use until it publishes the results of the monitoring programme.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.
