Brooksby eyeing tennis return after doping ban cut

Jenson Brooksby will be free to resume his tennis career next month after the American’s ban for doping was on Thursday reduced to 13 months.

Brooksby, who reached a career-high singles world ranking of 33 in 2022, was suspended for 18 months in October after missing three anti-doping tests in a 12-month period.

The 23-year-old appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) but new information submitted by Brooksby led the International Tennis Integrity Agency to announce on Thursday that the degree of fault attributed to the player had been reassessed.

As a result, officials reduced the ban to 13 months, backdated to his third missed test on February 4, 2023, which means Brooksby’s suspension now ends on March 3.

An ITIA statement said: “In reaching an agreement with the ITIA, the player has withdrawn their appeal to CAS.

“Due to the nature of the new information disclosed, it is not possible for the ITIA to discuss the specific details behind the reassessment or offer further comment.”
