Tamira Paszek’s season over due to back injury


Tamira PaszekTamira Paszek, investigated in her native Austria for doping, has ended her 2009 tennis season because of the back injury which forced her to receive the banned treatment.

The 18-year-old Paszek had her blood taken for enrichment and later reinjected in her lower back and is therefore being investigated by Austrian anti-doping authorities.

The 88th-ranked Paszek, whose last tennis match was the retirement in the first round of Wimbledon in June, has asked the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour for protected ranking for the next six months. (source: Tha Canadian Press, photo: Stephane Martinache)
