In the world of tennis there is some commotion during the last days by a news that has surprised many. Dayana Yastremska, 20-year-old young Ukrainian tennis player and number 29 in the WTA ranking, has been sanctioned for doping and provisionally suspended by the International Federation (ITF) due to a sample in which it appears metabolic anabolic, called mesterolone.
The Ukrainian is in shock and pleads not guilty. He assures that he has never doped, at least intentionally, and he will defend himself to try to show that it was a mistake. «I firmly affirm that I have never used drugs to improve performance or prohibited substances, “she says in a statement posted on her social networks, where she is usually very active.
I’m amazed and in shock particularly since two weeks before this test I tested negative at the WTA tournament in Linz. After the last event of the year, I stopped training to rest before starting the new season. Only a very high concentration was detected low mesterolone metabolite in my urine. Given that low concentration and given my negative result two weeks earlier, I have received scientific advice that the result is consistent with some type of contamination event. In addition, I have been informed that this substance is used as a medication for men and that women are warned that its use can have adverse effects, ”explains Yastremska.
The Ukrainian, meanwhile, takes the opportunity to remain very active on Instagram, where she usually delights her almost 120,000 followers with suggestive poses with which she sweeps the networks, thus joining other tennis players such as Camila Giorgi or Genie Bouchard, two of the most explosive in the world of the racket according to the content they publish on Instagram.
