Wickmayer Joins The List Of Naughty Tennis Players

November 5, 2009

Yanina Wickmayer, world number 18 and US Open semifinalist, has been banned for a year after failing doping regulations

Wickmayer failed to tell doping authorities of her location on three seperate occassions. Her compatriot, Xavier Malisse, has also been banned.

Pretty bad form from the Belgian and highly suspicious considering her success this year. Really bad news for Auckland’s ASB classic, who was hoping to have her as one of the drawcards in Jan.

The naughty tennis players list so far:

Ernests Gulbis, Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Yanina Wickmayer and Xavier Malisse.

Tut tut.
