Stefan Koubek of Austria was suspended for three months by the International Tennis Federation on Wednesday for failing a drug test at the French Open. Koubek tested positive for the banned substance triamcinolon acetonid, the ITF said. Koubek, who finished the season ranked 60th, attributed the test to an injection he received May 15 as treatment for an injured wrist.
