Banned Barbora is back!

Just noticed that Barbora Zahlavova Strycova is playing in the first round of qualifying tomorrow at Stuttgart (against fourth seed Lucic-Baroni). According to the article below, her six-month ban for taking a forbidden stimulant ran out this week (16 April) so this tournament is the first she could have participated in.

I wonder how well she will do, she will have to fight the hard way back into the top 100 and the main draws of WTAs and grand slams, no protected rankings or wild cards will be coming her way.....

I'm expecting BEGALS now she's not drugged up.

I'd imagine she'll get a MD WC into the $100,000 ITF in Prague next month.

I think it was inevitable she would drop out of the top-100 regardless of her ban because she was in awful form and she had quite a few points to defend in January but maybe the break could play in her favour and do her some good? She clearly wasn't enjoying her tennis at the end of 2012 and she had a few injuries too so maybe she'll come back fit, refreshed and ready for the challenge? I hope so, at least!

Re: Banned Barbora is back!

Do banned players for doping get a protected ranking? Barbora for sure wouldn't be able to get in qualies without it?
