Rafa Nadal has said he believed Maria Sharapova has been treated "fairly" after she admitted failing a drug test.
The men's world number five said: "Everybody can have mistakes. I want to believe for sure that it is a mistake for Maria, she didn't want to do it.

World number one Novak Djokovic has given his support to Maria Sharapova and said he hopes she "gets out of this stronger".
Women's tennis' most bankable star made the stunning announcement on Monday that she had failed a drug test for meldonium at the Australian Open.
Djokovic and Sharapova share a racquet sponsor and Djokovic has famously done impressions of the Russian on court.
He told TMZ.com: "I obviously wish her all the best. I've known her for a long time. I feel for her with all that's happening and I just hope she gets out of this stronger."
Maria Sharapova has "no excuse" for not realising that the medication she was taking had a banned ingredient in it, Dick Pound has said.
Speaking to ITV News, the former head of the World Anti Doping Agency said; "There's no excuse for somebody with her experience for testing positive for something she knew about and had been warned about.
She was either recklessly indifferent to what messages she was getting from Wada and the ATP or she did it deliberately and thought 'maybe I'll get away with it'".
Davis Cup-winning captain Leon Smith has extended his contract and will lead the Great Britain team for at least another three years.
The Scot succeeded John Lloyd in 2010 after Britain had suffered the ignominy of defeat by Lithuania and were on the verge of relegation to the competition's bottom tier.
Five years later Smith achieved what had appeared impossible and guided his country to a first Davis Cup title in 79 years with victory over Belgium.
After signing a deal until the end of 2018, which will also see him remain as the Lawn Tennis Association's head of men's tennis, Smith said: "It is a huge honour and privilege to continue captaining our Davis Cup team.
"We have achieved so much over the last six years and becoming world champions last year will be the highlight of my career."
The Russian government has said that Maria Sharapova's failed drugs test should not be "projected onto" the whole of Russian sport.
