Gasquet tests positive for cocaine

THE French tennis federation is aware of a failed drugs test by Richard Gasquet but is awaiting official confirmation, the FFT said yesterday.

"The FFT has learnt of the positive test of Richard Gasquet at the Miami tournament, although no official notification has been made," the FFT said in a statement. French sports daily L'Equipe reported on Saturday that world No. 23 Gasquet had failed a drugs test for cocaine at the Sony Ericsson Open at Key Biscayne, Miami, which finished last month. The 22-year-old Gasquet could face a two-year suspension from the sport. An ITF spokesman said yesterday: "We cannot confirm, deny or comment on this due our confidentiality rules."
