Maria Sharapova will make her professional tennis comeback following her doping ban at the Porsche Grand Prix in Stuttgart in April.
The former world number one is serving a 15-month ban after testing positive for cardiac drug meldonium last January and is eligible to compete again on April 26.
The Stuttgart tournament is an obvious comeback event given Porsche is one of her main sponsors, but it had been thought she would not be able to play because it starts two days before her suspension runs out.
Sharapova will not be allowed to attend the tournament until the Wednesday, the day of her first match.
She said on porsche.com: "I could not be happier to have my first match back on tour at one of my favourite tournaments. I can't wait to see all my great fans and to be back doing what I love."

Maria Sharapova has been named to compete at the Rio Olympics despite being suspended.
The five-times grand slam tennis champion tested positive for the banned substance meldonium and was provisionally suspended on March 12.
"We will include Sharapova in the team, which we need to announce by 6 June," Shamil Tarpishchev, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) member and president of the Russian Tennis Federation (RTF), told the R-Sport news agency.
"Whether she competes or not should be decided by the end of the first week of Roland Garros."
Sharapova is waiting for the outcome of a tennis anti-doping committee’s hearing of her meldonium positive case.
