is still facing a hearing after testing positive for meldonium, despite recent World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) pronouncements.The drug was added to WADA’s banned list at the start of the year and five-time Grand Slam championSharapova tested positive at the Australian Open. However, WADA issued new guidance earlier this week which said that athletes who tested positive for meldonium beforeMarch 1 could have bans overturned, as the agency was unable to establish how quickly the drug cleared the human body.The statement appeared to offer a lifeline to Sharapova, who is currently serving a provisional ban, but the ITF saidon Thursday that the Russian still faces a hearing and possible sanctions.The ITF statement read: “In light of the recent notice from WADA regarding the process for dealing with cases involving meldonium, the ITF can confirm that the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme case involving Maria Sharapova will proceed to a hearing in accordance with WADA’s recommendations. “The ITF does not intend to make any further statement until completion of this process due to the confidentiality of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme.“The Tennis Anti-Doping Programme is a comprehensive and internationally recognised drug-testing programme that applies to all players competing at Grand Slam tournaments and events sanctioned by the ITF, ATP, and WTA.“Players are tested for substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency and, upon a finding that an Anti-Doping rule violation has been committed, sanctions are imposed in accordance with the requirements of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme and World Anti-Doping Code.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
