(CBS Newspath) - Maria Sharapova returns to professional tennis today after a 15-month absence.

The former number-one female player in the World will play in the Porsche Grand Prix as Russias wild-card entry.

She was suspended from tennis after testing positive for a heart drug that became a banned substance at the beginning of 2016.

Some players are criticizing tournament organizers for allowing the five-time Grand Slam winner a direct spot in their main draws.
