The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA), which is responsible for testing within the sport, asked for a six-year ban because of what they argued were "aggravating circumstances", believing Halep's doping was "repetitive and sophisticated".

It also believed she must have been using a prohibited substance or prohibited method from March 2022 at the latest.

The ITIA suggested Halep was blood doping in order to boost her performance at Wimbledon and the US Open last year.

The ITIA also asked for her results to be disqualified from 8 March 2022 through to her provisional suspension on 7 October 2022.

from the BBC article:
"If Halep did use contaminated Keto MCT as she describes, it could not have been the sole source of the Roxadustat detected," the report said.

Halep has "not been able to identify the source of the other Roxadustat".

The report said: "We recognise our conclusions involve a finding of something which in itself appears highly improbable; that around the same time in 2022, Ms Halep ingested Roxadustat from two entirely separate sources [the supplement and somewhere else].


yeah, she'll have some explaining to do on this.
Report SamuelMertensBertens September 17, 2023 2:37 AM BST
In her statement presented to the independent tribunal, Halep said the Keto MCT supplement had been recommended by her physiotherapist Candice Gohier to help with nasal problems.

CryCry edy's bullying caused all this.
Report SamuelMertensBertens September 17, 2023 2:37 AM BST
Gohier got the supplement on the advice of Frederic Lefebvre, the director of physical preparation at Mouratoglou's academy.

Report SamuelMertensBertens September 17, 2023 2:38 AM BST
However, Halep did not disclose the Keto MCT supplement on her Doping Control Form for the urine sample that tested positive on 29 August and she also did not mention it in an interview with the ITIA on 26 October.

At June's hearing, Halep said she had forgotten about it on both occasions.


this is also not a good look Sad

Hey caramba, good to see the new 3 future maiden winners ATP comp. Just a thought that it may be sensible to launch the new WTA at the same time for symmetry? As you have clearly numbered the comp as 'version 2' there's no reason that the version 1 winner can't still get their flowers if Garcia somehow manages to string together 7 matches in a fortnight. Maybe you have a plan for this though.

If Woz can make a respectable comaback at 33 and take the eventual US open winner to 3 sets then Radwanska can come back at 34.
