Dayana Yastremska's application to lift her suspension has been denied

Dayana Yastremska's application to lift her suspension has been denied

The world number 29 was provisionally suspended at the start of the month after banned substance mesterolone was found in an out-of-competition sample.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) announced this Saturday through a brief statement that "a request from Dayana Yastremska to lift the provisional suspension qWhat was imposed on her on January 7, 2021 under Article 8.3.1 (c) of the 2020 Tennis Anti-Doping Program has been denied by the President of the Independent Court summoned to hear her case".

Yastremska, 20, is now in hard quarantine in a hotel in Melbourne after flying to Australia with hopes of playing the first Grand Slam of the year.

WTA players in hard quarantine include former Australian Open champions Victoria Azarenka and Angelique Kerber as well as 2019 U.S. Open victor Bianca Andreescu.

"Yastremska should never have been allowed to travel", Richard Ings, a former tennis umpire and ex-CEO of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, tweeted. Yastremska has the right to appeal Saturday's decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Yastremska was astonished After the news came out of Yastremska's positive test, the Ukrainian strongly denied any wrongdoing. "Given that low concentration and given my negative test two weeks earlier, I have received scientific advice that the result is consistent with some form of contamination event".

"Only a very low concentration of mesterolone metabolite was detected in my urine".

Yastremska was among nearly 1300 players and support crew that came on chartered flights to Australia, where they face 14 days of quarantine ahead of the Open's delayed start date of February 8.

US Open champion Dominic Thiem, who is now in Adelaide for an exhibition event, believed the players under the toughest rules were at a "huge disadvantage" ahead of the Grand Slam.

Three non-playing people who have tested positive are thought to have the highly-contagious United Kingdom strain of the virus.
