Maria Sharapova Is Red Hot In A Red Bikini

Looks like life's still a beach for the controversial tennis star.

What do you do when you're the highest-paid woman in sports in the midst of a drug scandal?

Why, go on a vacation of course!

At least that's Maria Sharapova did. The tennis champ, who recently revealed she failed a drug test for meldonium, a substance recently banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, was spotted on a beach in Mexico with pal Chelsea Handler over the weekend. The 28-year-old looked amazing in a red two-piece suit, a straw hat and not much else.

Lest anyone think Sharapova is stepping out of the spotlight after being dropped by a slew of sponsors and provisionally suspended from tennis, she also shared a few photos from the trip on Instagram:

Sigh. If only we could hop on a plane to the beach every time a new sports scandal popped up.
