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

The Australian Open is scheduled to run from February 8 to 21 after it was postponed by three weeks to allow for the period of quarantine after players arrive in the country.

Yastremska had traveled to Melbourne on board one of Tennis Australia's charter flights and was in quarantine pending the outcome of the ITF hearing.

Her situation worsened when the International Tennis Federation released a statement on Sunday saying that an independent tribunal had denied 20-year-old Yastremska's application to have her provisional ban lifted.

In early-January, it was announced that world No. 29 Yastremska was being suspended from all tennis activity following a positive doping test.

Tennis Australia chief executive and Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley always has a kind word to share on Twitter. The ITF said its latest decision is subject to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport by Yastremska, WADA and the National Anti-Doping Center of Ukraine.

A urine sample Yastremska gave on 24 November contained a metabolite of mesterolone, a synthetic testosterone.

Covid : le protocole en entreprise va être adapté sur les masques

"I firmly state that I have never used any performance enhancing drugs or prohibited substances", she said.

"I am astonished and under shock, particularly given that two weeks prior to this test - on 9 November 2020 - I tested negative at the WTA event in Linz".

Dayana Yastremska was eager to have a great 2021 after a disappointing 2020.

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. Even if he recurs, it is very hard for him to play in the first Grand Slam of the season.

Sousa has since tested negative and is not displaying symptoms but would not be ready for the tournament in time due to the mandatory two-week quarantine period upon arrival in Australia.
