Nicolas Jarry: Chilean suspended after testing positive at Davis Cup

Nicolas Jarry was part of a Chile team beaten in the group stages of the Davis Cup finals in November

Chile’s Nicolas Jarry has been provisionally suspended after testing positive for two banned substances during last year’s Davis Cup.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) said the 24-year-old’s sample contained anabolic agent ligandrol and anabolic steroid stanozolol.

World number 78 Jarry said he had not “intentionally” taken any banned substance during his career.

“It strongly looks like a cross-contamination case,” he said.
