The Brazilian qualifier beaten by Britain’s Harriet Dart in Wimbledon’s second round this month has been suspended for a doping violation.

Beatriz Haddad-Maia, now ranked 99, failed a urine test at the WTA Tour event in Bol, Croatia, early in June.

She was not informed of the charge until July 12, after her sample had been analysed by a WADA lab in Canada.

The previous week she had earned £72,000 by qualifying and making the second round at Wimbledon, where she lost in three sets to the Middles3x player.

The banned substance discovered was described in an International Tennis Federation statement as containing outlawed SARM S-22 and SARM LGD-4033 metabolite.

A provisional suspension was imposed from last Saturday, with her having the right to appeal to an independent tribunal.
