Now ranked no.42, the Frenchwoman has recently crashed out in the 3rd round fo the Australian Open, but this is not the big problem that Alize needs to face right now.
According to a statement from the French Tennis Federation, Alize Cornet missed 3 random tests at home in 2017. The Frenchwoman stated that were “valuable reasons” why she missed these tests.
In the meantime, the French Federation declined to add Cornet to the Fed Cup line-up.
The statement from the French Tennis Federation
“The French Tennis Federation, despite the consequences that the absence of Alize Cornet is likely to cause for the France team on a sporting level, wishes to show its firm determination to see the ITF’s anti-doping programme to be fully implemented.”
