France's Alize Cornet is being investigated by the International Tennis Federation for violating anti-doping rules, the French Tennis Federation (FFT) has said.

Cornet, the world number 42, is alleged to have missed three random out-of-competition drugs tests in 12 months.

The FFT says the 27-year-old will not be selected for France's Fed Cup tie with Belgium starting on 10 February.

Cornet lost in the third round of the Australian Open.

“Last October I got a 3rd “no show” from the Anti Doping Agency and the ITF, which means that among the 20 anti doping controls that I had in the 2017 season, which were all negative of course, I missed 3 unannounced controls at home because of valuable reasons that the ITF didn’t want to hear.

“My case will be presented at a hearing in March that will determine the rest of my season. I will continue my tournaments normally till then, nevertheless I won’t be able to represent my country at the next Fed Cup event due to a clause in the ITF law.

“I will keep you updated and promise you to stay strong during this tough time.”

She's in big trouble. Thats's almost 4 months ago that she was informed and they've not exonerated yet her.

Shame on her. She knows the rules; all players know the rules. Show up for your doping tests, and make yourself available, no matter how inconvenient they may be. It's WADA job to be independent and unbiased. How are they to know why exactly you were not at your test date other than to speculate it has something to do with doping? Especially when you've done it multiple times.

To her defense, WADA can mess up their doping system. Remember Wickmayer getting into trouble for not updating her whereabouts, because she had no access to it (password issues).
They had send the info by mail to her while she and her dad (her mom died years ago) were on the tour.
Irony: they knew exactly where she was as she was playing a WTA event (and actually got tested there, if my memory serves well).

And I also recall Serena hiding in a panic room (and missing a test) because she did not know the guy who was at her door.
You see, there are reasons why people miss an unannounced test or seemingly do something wrong.


Please, stop judging people based on a snippet of info in the media without knowing full details.... (and I don't even like Cornet as a player).

@ Graveller:
  3 times in one  year for an experienced player? No. Especially in the year Maria returned to the tour to all the players' dismay? No.

Wickmayer too. She missed 3 tests  before her miraculous run at GS. Since then, and her suspension, she's pretty much disappeared.

As for Serena, she called the police. You don't call the police if you're intentionally avoiding a legit tester.

Former ASADA chief executive Richard Ings, who was also in charge of the ATP Tour’s rules and competitions department, described the situation as “very serious indeed”.

On social media, Ings advised athletes who believe they have been issued a missed test strike in error to challenge it immediately rather than let the situation progress to the point reached by Cornet.

Tennis Anti-Doping Programme statement regarding Alize Cornet

[PRESSRELEASE]
Following the statement made by Alize Cornet, the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (TADP) confirms the following:

- Ms. Cornet has been charged with a violation of TADP Article 2.4 (Failing three times in any 12-month period…to be available for Testing at the declared whereabouts in accordance with Article I.4 of the International Standard for Testing and Investigations (a "Missed Test")).

- Ms. Cornet was charged with the above violation on 11 January 2018.

- In accordance with the TADP rules, no further comment will be made pending determination of the case, except as may be necessary to respond to public comment by Ms. Cornet or her representatives. In that regard, the TADP points out that, contrary to the implication in Ms. Cornet’s statement that the ‘valuable reasons’ for her unavailability for testing at her declared whereabouts went unheard, the process set out in the International Standard for Testing and Investigations for the management of Whereabouts Failures, which includes the right for the player to request an independent assessment of whether the requirements for such failures were met, was followed in all three instances.

The Tennis Anti-Doping Programme is a comprehensive and internationally recognised drug-testing programme that applies to all players competing at Grand Slam tournaments and events sanctioned by the ITF, ATP, and WTA. Players are tested for substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency and, upon a finding that an Anti-Doping Rule Violation has been committed, sanctions are imposed in accordance with the requirements of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme and World Anti-Doping Code. More background information on the Programme, sanctions, tennis statistics and related information can be found at www.itftennis.com/antidoping.

@ Grossefavourite:
 Wickmayer was cleared... the whereabout systems was flawed at the time... if you do not get a password to get access, you cannot fill in the data. Quite simple.
So she did not miss a test... no one appeared at her doon.. no reason to call the police because there is no one at your door Smile Smile
And on top of that, ITF tested her on some of the days that the whereabouts were incomplete...

She had proof that she was mailing WADA for getting access... they failed to give her access.... You may have a case on Cornet, but Wickmayer could be blamed for nothing... she did not even hide for the WADA-guy in a panic room.....

The thing that I don't understand is: Why not just take the test and get it over with? If you have nothing to hide then it wouldn't have mattered but avoiding that many tests indicates something else. They should make her pay all of the prize money that she won back and ban her for at least a year.

"With my brother (her then agent) we were very careful. We have not made any mistake on that last 'no show'. I was at home and the controllers could not join me. It was a big misunderstanding," Cornet said.

"That's why I am really hopeful that this third 'no show' will help me be cleared because it was not my fault."

French player Alize Cornet has avoided a potential ban after the International Tennis Federation dismissed a charge against her for missing three drugs tests in a year.

Players must be available for out-of-competition testing for one hour every day under the whereabouts rule.

Cornet, 28, said her intercom buzzer was broken during the third attempt.

An independent tribunal found the doping control officer did not take "reasonable steps" to locate her.

The world number 32 said she was inside her apartment during the designated time slot, but did not receive an intercom call or a phone call.

She also pointed out she had never tested positive in over 100 tests during her career.

The tribunal said it accepted Cornet's "frank and compelling" evidence.

"No-one has suggested any basis for thinking she has ever taken any form of prohibited drug," it added.

Cornet said she missed the first attempted test, on 3 November, 2016, after leaving early for a flight to a competition because she was "afraid of missing her flight due to traffic".

She had also already left her home in Cannes for the Stanford Classic in the United States at the time of the second attempted test on 26 July, 2017.

Cornet was successfully tested twice in March 2017, and again on 11 October, before the third missed test took place on 24 October.
