Dupuis Banned Until November

http://www.sportinglife.com/tennis/n...ra-Dupuis.html

Antony Dupuis has been handed a two-and-a-half-month suspension by the International Tennis Federation for a doping offence.


A sample collected from the Frenchman, currently ranked 166 in the world, at the Tunis Challenger event in May tested positive for salbutamol.


The 33-year-old said he had taken the drug to treat asthma and even though the tribunal accepted his defence, the ITF have punished him for failing to provide the required medical certificate to take it.


With the suspension having been backdated to August 26, Dupuis will be eligible to return to competition on November 11.

Re: Dupuis Banned Until November

Salbutamol is common asthma medication. I believe there was a similar case with Bogomolov jr. a while ago.
Dupuis should have asked for an exemption. It was stupid of him not to do that, but the fact that slabutamol is on a banned substence list is even more stupid.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Man...I take that stuff daily.

Still, he should have carried out the necessary steps...even less of an excuse as he has been playing for years

Bogo's case is a little bit different. He had the right documents but they expired and he forgot to renew them.

Honestly, when most tennis fans know when you use asthma medication, a banned substance will show up in your blood test. I have a hard time understanding a pro who is in the tour for so many years failed to ask for an exemption in the first place.
