The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has rejected an attempt by Ukraine’s world No. 29 Dayana Yastremska to get her doping ban lifted.

Yastremska was suspended on January 7 after testing positive for a banned anabolic agent used in male infertility treatment.

The ITF said Yastremska was positive for the outlawed mesterolone metabolite in an out-of-competition test conducted last November.

Sunday’s decision is subject to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) by Yastremska, World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the National Anti-Doping Centre of Ukraine.
