Dayana Yastremska’s latest appeal of her provisional doping suspension has been denied, keeping her sidelined.

Professional tennis player Dayana Yastremska’s latest appeal of her provisional doping suspension was denied Tuesday, keeping her sidelined.

The 20-year-old Ukrainian, who has been ranked as high as No.21, originally was suspended in January for failing an out-of-competition drug test. She tested positive for mesterolone metabolite, a prohibited substance that can be used to boost testosterone.

Yastremska has denied using performance enhancers or prohibited substances.

She has filed multiple appeals of her ban, without success. One appeal fell down after she travelled to Australia for the Australian Open, on the slim chance that she would be allowed to play; yet she ultimately made the huge journey for nothing.

Yastremska has won three WTA singles titles. Her best showing at a Grand Slam tournament was reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon in her main-draw debut there in 2019.
