Two-time women’s Grand Slam champion Simona Halep has been banned from tennis for four years for violating the tennis anti-doping program [TADP].
The Romanian had already been suspended during the investigation for possible doping and has now received a long-term ban from sports.
Halep was automatically withdrawn from the US Open due to her doping ban and is now on leave after two irregular doping tests.
The International Tennis Integrity Agency confirmed on Tuesday that an independent court had decided the punishment based on two separate incidents involving the former Wimbledon champion.
