The five-time Grand Slam champion, who was banned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport after testing positive for meldonium last year, is closing in on her return to the court and is due to play at the Porsche Grand Prix in Stuttgart, beginning April 26.

And ahead of her comeback, Sharapova joined Billie Jean King, Aly Raisman and Lexi Thompson to talk at the second annual ANA Inspiring Women in Sports conference – before the LPGA’s first golf major of the year, the ANA Inspiration.

Legend Billie Jean, Sharapova, three-time Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Raisman and ANA Inspiration champion Thompson also briefly traded golf swings for tennis strokes on the 18th hole before sharing their inspiring stories to a sell-out audience at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California.
