Karatantcheva caught on doping

It's all in today's L'équipe. She tested positive (nandrolon) at Roland Garros this year after her match against Elena Likhovtseva. She could be suspended for 2 years. She had to go to London last week to defend herself in front of the ITF and they will make a decision in January.

The day she tested positive, 30th of June, she was 15 years and 10 months old. Her explanation was (according to L'équipe) that she was pregnant without her knowing it. Later, she had a miscarriage, but several urine tests contradicted that.

Quite a shocker

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

here's the article:

Tennis-Dopage : Karatantcheva contrôlée positive


Après les Argentins Mariano Puerta et Mariano Hood, la Bulgare Sesil Karatantcheva vient rallonger la liste des joueurs contrôlés positifs pendant Roland-Garros, selon L'Equipe daté du 20 décembre. L'échantillon d'urine de la jeune espoir mondiale, âgée de quinze ans et dix mois au moment des faits, a révélé des traces de nandrolone.

Surnommée 'Spécial K', elle avait marqué les esprits en atteignant les quarts de finale après avoir évincé l'Américaine Venus Williams. La 39e joueuse mondiale risque deux ans de suspension.

Le test a été effectué à l'issue de son quart de finale perdu contre Elena Likhovtseva, le mardi 30 juin. Karatantcheva a comparu la semaine dernière à Londres devant trois juges désignés par la fédération internationale de tennis.

Devastating news, hopefully it turns out to be untrue, she has too much talent and potential to go to waste.
