Things aren't looking so good for Maria Sharapova.
The tennis legend was suspended for two years on Wednesday after testing positive for meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open.
According to the Associated Press, a three-person panel appointed by the International Tennis Federation said that while Sharapova did not intend to cheat, she bore the "sole responsibility" for doping.
But the five-time Grand Slam champion is hitting back hard, immediately responding to the ban by vowing to appeal the decision.
In a statement, the athlete said:
The 34-year-old covered the popular publication's July issue, and dished about certain parts of that dating rumor getting totally out of hand.
Specifically, after Miz Williams lost the 2015 U.S. Open, fans flocked to social media to blame Drizzy, saying the rapper distracted his supposed lady love.
However, the acclaimed athlete is saying that's just a crock of sh*t, telling the glossy:
Is that you, Emma Stone??
Emma and her Crazy, Stupid, Love costar Steve Carell are back, and we mean WAY back in 1973 for the upcoming film Battle Of The Sexes.

Raymond Moore, the CEO and tournament director at Indian Wells, a very popular yearly destination for pro tennis stars, has resigned from his position in disgrace.
His decision comes after quite a bit of backlash for some awful remarks about female tennis stars.
The shamed CEO said on Sunday, before the final of the BNP Paribas Open that featured Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, that the women's game had a LOT to be thankful for from the men:
How do you solve a problem like Maria Sharapova?
Well, according to her former coach, you don't have to — because she didn't do anything wrong in the first place!
The tennis star is currently under fire after admitting to failing a drug test at the Australian Open last week, and while she's been suspended from playing for the time being, one industry pro is still on her team.
Coach Robert Lansdorp trained Maria back when she was just 11 years old, and now he's saying there's "no way in hell" that the 28-year-old would intentionally break the rules!
In fact, the tennis mentor spoke to the Daily Mail on Tuesday accusing the World Anti-Doping Agency of causing a witch hunt, saying:
Harsh! But is it over the line?
The 28-year-old Olympic silver medalist's suspension goes into effect on March 12 and she's already been dropped to varying degrees by Nike, Porsche, and TAG Heuer, but now the people behind the decision to make Meldonium an illegal performance enhancing drug in 2016 are speaking out against her.
Former World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound spoke quite critically of Maria's scandal to the BBC on Tuesday, saying:
