British player Tara Moore suspended for doping
Moore, who is ranked 83rd in doubles, tested positive for nandrolone metabolites and Boldenone during a WTA tournament in Colombia in April, according to the International Tennis Integrity Agency.
“The player now has the opportunity to request that the B sample is analyzed to see if that confirms the A sample,” the ITIA said.
Moore responded on her Twitter, saying she has “never knowingly taken a banned substance in my career.”
“I am investigating how the positive result could have occurred and look forward to proving that I am a clean athlete,” she wrote, “I am deeply saddened by the provisional suspension and hope to be back on the court as soon as possible.”
