Maria Sharapova treats suspension from doping scandal like a vacation, spotted with Chelsea Handler in bikini

Maria Sharapova continues her vacation getaway as she was recently spotted with Chelsea Handler in a resort in Mexico.

Looks like tennis star Maria Sharapova is taking things lightly after admitting that she failed a drug test early this month as she continues her vacation trip in Mexico and this time she is spotted with Chelsea Handler and friends.

TMZ reported that the 28-year old tennis hottie continues her vacation tour after she got suspended by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) for using a banned medicine, Meldonium. She stated in a press conference that she will take full responsibility of her actions and will accept all the consequences of it, which is most likely what she is doing as she takes the time off from all of the media attention to relax.

Sharapova is spotted with television talk host and comedian Chelsea Handler in an exclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. US Magazine also reported that Handler forgot to bring her swim suit and instead used her underwear to get some tan from the sun.

Handler even posted a video of it on her Instagram account saying that she does not care if she forgot to bring a swim suit and she just enjoys the time with friends. The vacation came after the five-time grand slam champion admitted to failing a drug test in the Australian Open which resulted to companies such as Nike, Tag Heuer, Porsche and the United Nations to cut ties with the Russian tennis star.

I forgot my bathing suit and just thought….who cares…

Though Nike has stated that it is willing to take back Sharapova as its endorser once the thorough investigation on the matter is being completed.

The unlikely of friends spend the day under the sun drinking with friends and showing off their athletic bodies. The pair also hanged out last December at a pro-am tennis tournament held in Los Angeles where they teamed up and defeated Andy Roddick and Will Arnett in an exhibition match.
