Errani banned for anti-doping violation

Errani reached her pinnacle in 2012 losing to Maria Sharapova in the French Open final

Italian Sara Errani has been banned for two months after failing a drug test.

Not only could they be using Sara Errani as a scapegoat, but they also banned her for two months, an amount of time that shows that they are taking action, but is also not long enough to really hurt the player.

According to the document from the disciplinary proceeding, the tribunal concluded that it was "more likely than not" that the drug "entered the Player's body by means of her mother's medication, Femara, accidentally contaminating the Player's food".

The tribunal sanctioned Errani, 30, after ruling that she could have done more to protect herself. Mrs Errani - who has suffered multiple incidences of cancer in the past - kept the chemical in a blister pack of pills, which she would leave to the side of her kitchen worktop.

"I am extremely disappointed but - at the same time - at peace with my conscience and aware I haven't done anything wrong, neither have I committed any negligence against [the] anti-doping program".

All her results from the date of her positive out-of-competition test on 16 February until a negative test on 7 June have been annulled.

Commenting on the decision via a lengthy statement posted on her official Twitter account, Errani wrote: "I never took, in my life and during my career, any prohibited substance".

The newspapers also informed that the Italian, who lost in the 2012 French Open final to another drug offender, Maria Sharapova, has dropped out of the Rogers Cup in Montreal which started Monday.

An ITF statement said Errani was charged with an anti-doping violation on April 18 and had promptly asked for a hearing before an Independent Tribunal.

The ban will be effective August 3 and comes months after she initially accepted the violation in April, but was given an opportunity to present evidence to a panel.

"The only viable option has been that an accidental food contamination occurred at some stage in the house."

Following their daughter's failed test her parents even carried out their own experiment to discover whether a tablet could have dissolved into broth, and found that it did.
