French player Alizé Cornet, who faces a possible suspension after missing three unannounced doping tests in 2017, explained in an interview with l’Équipe.
Cornet usually puts down 6 a.m. for her “whereabouts” hour, as dictated by the anti-doping rules. But she had early airport calls to head to the Fed Cup final and the Miami Open.
She didn’t update her file to indicate she was in transit, and missed the testers
The third time, she says she was home. But there was a “huge misunderstanding”.
In the meantime, Cornet is playing St. Petersburg this week.
