Maria Sharapova will learn the result of her appeal against a two-year doping ban in the first week of October.

Five-time grand slam champion Sharapova, 29, announced in March that she tested positive for meldonium at January's Australian Open.

A two-year ban was imposed in June, back-dated to January, and she appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport seeking a reduction.

A hearing had been scheduled for next Monday but a CAS statement on Tuesday read: "The Court of Arbitration for Sport will issue its decision in the arbitration procedure between Maria Sharapova and the International Tennis Federation (ITF) during the first week of October 2016."
