There was a nice little LTA blog here from Tara, about her shoulder operation last year, living with Emina's parents, and doing a lot of coaching as part of the rehab.

Apparently she's applying for her Green card.

 She must have received it now as she is travelling agan. From my own experience, if you are in the top priority group it only takes a few months, I think it was about 5 months for me.

Is she travelling again? I thought all her events have been in the US for the last however long?

But great to hear it's relatively straight forward.

Tara is also the guest on the latest Behind the Racquet podcast from Noah Rubin this week. Haven't listened to it yet but Noah is pretty unleashed (like Tara!) so it should be good.

Tara has withdrawn from Pune.

 

But following on from various threads on twitter about the lack of tournaments above W25 level, the ITF have announced a number of W60, W80 and W100 tournaments in the summer.

 jeez -it seemed obvious something had happened. 

They dont usually make mistakes and the B usually confirms the A. She will no doubt argue her case but it doesnt look good.

That WTA 250 in Bogota in early April was where Tara obtained her best ever points haul. Emina and her lost the final on a MTB, with the 180 ranking points taking Tara into the top 100 for the first time. So those points would no doubt be the first to be knocked off if and when the suspension is confirmed.

Now we can but await further news.

"The sample was split into A and B samples and the subsequent analysis found that the A sample contained Nandrolone metabolites and Boldenone and its metabolite, which are prohibited substances listed in the 2022 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List."

 This is the same as Robert Farah , the Colombian doubles star, who proved hed eaten contaminated meat and was found not guilty. Not sure if that will be the route Tara looks into but the near question in South America is a common defence.

Nadrolone is a muscle growth stimulant, right? Not being funny, but Tara is not exactly built like Dwain Chambers... I'm sure that this is one of those classic (awful) accidental ingestion situations (supplements or the like). Which doesn't mean it won't mean a ban. Poor Tara.

 Nandrolone is what Rusedski was tested positive for and showed hed eaten contaminated supplements.

Tara's comment

Now, of course, either (i) yes, well, anyone would say that, or (ii) it's true that there have been quite a few very trace positive tests, tiny amounts, from contamination or whatever, and that would be really dreadful for a clean athlete. We'll wait to see......
