Yanina Wickmayer withdraw from the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions

Wickmayer

Following the withdrawal of Yanina Wickmayer from the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions, WTA Tour Chairman and CEO Stacey Allaster stated:

“As reported this morning, the Flemish Doping Tribunal has informed Yanina Wickmayer that effective immediately they are suspending her from competition due to three filing failures under the Belgian anti-doping whereabouts programme. With this information Yanina herself has voluntarily withdrawn from the tournament and as a matter of policy the tour will not make comment on an ongoing tennis anti-doping matter.”

Wickmayer’s place will be taken by tournament alternate Vera Dushevina, who will play Anabel Medina Garrigues.

Kimiko Date Krumm will advance to the semi-finals from Group C having a head-to-head win/loss record over Garrigues, as a result of the withdrawal.

Just thinking though: Wow in the middle of the tournament, will yeah she did’nt report her whereabouts but common she not the only one who is affected by this, Anabel Medina Garrigues where affected because she will not have a chance to qualify into the semis.  The good thing about this is that Kimiko Date Krumm was automatically going into semis.

Hmmm why they just can’t wait for the end of the tour before given the bans, and take note it is a surprise though as I recall it will be given only as a reprimand.   Ahhh what the ….. lolz.
