Text size Aa Aa

Spanish doubles specialist Nuria Llagostera Vives has been banned for two years after testing positive for a banned substance.

The Mallorca born 33-year-old, winner of the 2009 WTA tour championships, failed to convince a tribunal that her tainted urine sample was not a result of deliberate doping.

She suggested she inadvertently ingested the drug while drinking water from the wrong bottle.
