Yastremska appeals

Dayana Yastremska, whose provisional suspension for doping was upheld last weekend, is appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport with a request for her case to be fast-tracked so it can be resolved ahead of the Australian Open, which starts of 8 February.

The CAS arbitration has commenced and the parties have agreed to an expedited procedure in order to enable a sole arbitrator to issue a final decision by 3 February. CAS Statement

The Court has told the World No 29 that they will make a decision by 3 February, giving the Ukrainian a chance of competing as she waits for an answer in quarantine in Melbourne.

Yastremska was provisionally banned earlier in January for failing an out-of-competition doping test and the ITF rejected the 20-year-old’s attempt to lift the ban on Saturday.

“The CAS arbitration has commenced and the parties have agreed to an expedited procedure in order to enable a sole arbitrator to issue a final decision by 3 February,” said CAS.

Yastremska has denied using performance-enhancing drugs after testing positive for mesterolone metabolite, an anabolic agent, in November.

The Ukrainian, who has been ranked as high as 21 in the world, said she was ‘shocked’ by the positive test and suggested it was the result of a ‘contamination event’.

Despite the provisional ban, she was allowed to travel to Melbourne for AO21, and has been in quarantine with other players.

“In her appeal to CAS, Ms Yastremska seeks to have the challenged decision set aside and her provisional suspension lifted in order to be able to participate in the 2021 Australian Open tennis tournament,” added CAS.
