Tamira Paszek still eligible to play, Austria’s anti-doping agency decides


Tamira Paszek

Last week we reported that Tamira Paszek was facing a provisional suspension while officials investigated whether the blood reinjection she had received violated doping regulations. The latest news is that the Austrian tennis player won’t be suspended.

The disciplinary committee of Austria’s anti-doping agency said that Paszek can play on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour at least until a verdict is reached in about seven weeks.
