Andy Murray says Maria Sharapova has no excuse for her failed drug test and has to get suspended. Craig Anderson Jersey . Sharapova is provisionally banned after a positive test for meldonium, which was added to the World Anti-Doping Agencys list of banned substances on January 1.The womens world No 7 says she has taken the drug for 10 years on medical advice and has blamed the failed test on her failure to read an updated list of prohibited substances. But Murray, a long-time advocate of stricter testing, has little sympathy and even went as far as to criticise his own racket-makers Head for standing by Sharapova. Skys Jane Dougall explains what next for tennis star Maria Sharapova who admitted failing a drugs test Speaking at a press conference in Indian Wells, he said: I think its a strange stance, given everything thats happened in the last few days. I dont really know what else to say on that, but thats not something I believe.I think at this stage its important really to get hold of the facts and let things play out, like more information coming out before making a decision to extend the contract like that, in my view. I personally wouldnt have responded like that.If youre taking performance enhancing drugs and you fail a drugs test, you have to get suspended.Some people put a lot of trust in the team around them so its hard to say whats the right thing for everyone but its almost kind of part of her job to know everything thats going into her body.Murray also cast doubt on whether every athlete caught using meldonium - commonly used to treat angina - has a genuine medical reason. Sharapova announced this week she had failed a drug test in January I read that 55 athletes have failed tests for that substance since January 1, he said. You just dont expect high level athletes at the top of many sports to have heart conditions.I think taking a prescription drug that you dont necessarily need, but just because its legal, thats wrong, clearly. Thats wrong.If youre taking a prescription drug and youre not using it for what that drug was meant for, then you dont need it, so youre just using it for the performance enhancing benefits that drug is giving you. And I dont think that thats right. Also See: Head stands by Sharapova Nadal: Im completely clean Radwanska shocked by Sharapova Marias message to fans Daniel Alfredsson Jersey .
