 The ITIA report, para 99(2), says 'she began working with her new coach Mr Patrick Mouratoglou in March 2021' and moved to his academy later that year

 Makes PM look worse still

So one of the top tennis players didn't have a doping blood test for 6 months, and some players think that's acceptable. What a shambolic organisation.

The report has now been published. With a lot of detail for those who like it.
And a few gossipy bits for those who prefer those bits

 Finally finished reading it, having started yesterday evening. 

Not clear if Simona's blood doping began around April 2022 or if it had been taking place years earlier; blood samples 2 (2014) and 19 (2017) appear suspicious but insufficient data as the Athlete Biological Passport is so complicated that it requires far more blood samples than seem to be taken. 

102 - Simona forgot to mention the Keto MCT supplement during her October 26th interview with ITIA or list it on her doping control form for her urine test on 29th August (the supplement which then went on to be a major part of her defence)

185 - Professor Alvarez (Halep's witness) testified that the (hair) test results were consistent with "microdoses" of Roxadustat (as well as his alternative explanation). 

The way it was structured didn't help provide clarity on what actually happened, as it was up to Halep's team to find a credible explanation for her test results; which they failed to do.
