Gasquet suspended for failed drug test

FRANCE'S Richard Gasquet has been provisionally suspended from tennis after testing positive for cocaine, the International Tennis Federation said yesterday.

"He's under investigation with respect to ITF's anti-doping program. Under WADA terms, once B sample confirms A sample, we have to provisionally suspend him," Stuart Miller, the ITF's head of Science and Technical, said. "From the point of B sample being known to the end of hearing, it should be no longer than 60 days." Gasquet confirmed on Sunday he had failed the test at last month's Miami tournament but has denied any wrongdoing.
