Simona Halep’s doping ban has been reduced from four years to nine months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Having already served a provisional suspension since October 2022, she can return to tennis with immediate effect.

The 32-year-old Romanian star was banned by the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) for “intentional” doping offences.

The CAS Panel determined that “on the balance of probabilities” Halep had not taken the banned substance Roxadustat purposely and while she “did bear some level of fault or negligence for her violations” it was not intentional.
