Sara Errani’s Suspension Increased to 10 months

Former French Open finalist Sara Errani’s suspension for doping has been increased from 2 months to 10 months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the CAS announced on Monday.

Errani’s original two-month ban was served from August to October 2017, and that period will count toward her new 10-month suspension.

“I have dedicated my life to this sport and I don’t think I deserve all this,” Errani wrote on Twitter. “I feel powerless against such an injustice. … All of this is a total nonsense! … I don’t know if I will be able to find the strength and desire to play tennis again, after all this.”

CAS ruled that the letrozole came from medicine taken by Errani’s mother “that found its way into the family meal prepared by the athlete’s mother and eaten by the entire family, including the athlete” in February 2017. But the court said Errani needed to be more careful and that her mother’s fault “is imputed to her.”
