The Romanian tennis champion Simona Halep has been out for some time due to a doping-related ban, but in the last few hours important updates and news have arrived that make her fans smile. Currently the former number one in the world and Grand Slam champion is provisionally suspended, pending a definitive sentence on her case, but the tennis player has been announced among the tennis players registered for the 2023 US Open.
Not much else is known about this story but this potentially appears as a signal that the tennis player's hearing went very well. A further detail after Simona published an Instagram Stories on Instagram this week where she trained on hard courts.
This and hard training in the gym that she seems ready more than ever to definitely get back into the circuit.
Doping banned Simona Halep is in the Us Open Entry List!
It must be said that Simona Halep could not technically be on the Entry List of the tournament without WTA points.
If Simona doesn't play the Masters 1000 in Montreal this year, she will officially drop to 0 points in the ranking. And at that point only a wild card would guarantee Simona a chance to compete in Flushing Meadows. At the moment this situation is unclear, pending official doping verdict.
Simona's case is quite well known by now, the ITIA has repeatedly postponed the hearing and both the tennis player and her staff are waiting to know her future. Meanwhile Simona presented all of her arguments, together with her staff of lawyers.
The former Roland Garros and Wimbledon winner is a cumbersome absence in the circuit and after the difficulties related to the verdict, according to the latest rumors the verdict could be made in the next few days. Digi Sport journalist Dragos Suciu has revealed in recent days that there has been a delay in the verdict and that the lawyers are awaiting official news.
Currently Simona Halep has been suspended for over six months (since November 2022) and she hopes to return to the court as soon as possible.
