Week Ten was dominated by the news of Maria Sharapova's failed drug test. Ahead of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, "Meldonium" became a very familiar word to tennis fans. The other big story this week, of course, was Venus Williams' return to Indian Wells for the first time in 15 years. After Serena ended the family boycott last year, Venus followed suit this week wearing a wide smile when she entered Stadium 1 to rapturous applause. For Serena, her appearance this week was her first official event on tour since the Australian Open in January. On the men's side, Indian Wells is without Roger Federer who is recovering from knee surgery, and Andy Murray makes his first tour appearance since the Australian Open.
Let's have a closer look at what's been happening #ThisWeekInTennis!
