Ex-World No. 1 Simona Halep Says ‘There Is No Proof’ Behind Doping Ban

Sep 18, 2023

Simona Halep figured she’d be exonerated when a tribunal finally ruled on her doping case.

“I was confident after the hearing because there were so many things that made no sense and that are not fair,” the two-time women’s tennis singles Grand Slam champion said in an exclusive interview with Front Office Sports.

But a tribunal, which issued Halep a four-year ban last week, basically disregarded all the evidence her attorney and the experts presented at a June hearing to explain why a drug — one banned since it has been shown to boost endurance — was found in her system.
