Richard Gasquet Tested Postive for Cocaine!

According to L’Equipe, Frechman Richard Gasquet has tested positive for cocaine and could face a possible suspension from the ATP. Here is the story from L’Equipe (translated using Google Translator):

Team Information: Traces of cocaine were found in the urine sample of Richard Gasquet, controlled in Miami when he had to forfeit the tournament. These trace levels of 1.46 microgram (ie above the sensitivity threshold of 0.5 applied to all accredited laboratories) could claim the french tennis player suspended for two years if the second opinion corroborated against the premium analysis .

Indeed, cocaine is one of the major stimulants banned in competition. The french player, who denies any voluntary, did not wish to react to information, but should quickly make hair analysis to show that it is not regular. Finally, Team Lagardère should communicate quickly about this, probably in the middle of Sunday afternoon.
