Bulgarian tennis player Sesil Karatantcheva appealed her two-year doping ban to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The International Tennis Federation suspended the 16-year-old Karatantcheva on Jan. 11 after she twice tested positive for the steroid nandrolone. "The player requests the annulment of the decision challenged," CAS said in a statement Thursday.
