Apparently she had been taking something (meldonium) for several years and wasn't aware that it was recently added to the banned substances list.

Sorry to post this on a Friday before a game, but a major and totally surprising piece of sports news.
Roberta Vinci, a 32 year old (300:1 odds) Italian beat Serena Williams in the US Open, denying Williams the chance of a calendar Gran Slam, last done in 1988 by Steffi Graf.
I've recently moved back to the A2 area after a few years away, and sadly most of my tennis hitting buddies have since moved out of the area. The tennis meetup sites don't seem to have a lot to offer around here, so I figured I'd reach out to the MGoBlogosphere. Anyone interested in meeting up for a hit? I'm in the NTRP 4.0-4.5ish range. If there's any interest, I'll post an email in the thread so we can get in touch.
Novak Djokovic takes on Stan Wawrinka this morning at 9:00 AM EST for the French Open title. Could have big implications as Novak goes for a Grand Slam.
Should be a good match! Thought I'd post this for any fellow tennis lovers out there. Happy Sunday!
Today, Michigan fired Men's tennis coach Bruce Berque after 10 seasons.
9 straight years in the NCAA Tournament must not be good enough for DB.
A very strange amount of coaching changes on this campus in the "non-revenue sports" the last two years. From what I've heard from various people and a few posters on here, Water Polo coach Matt Anderson was forced out rather than him leaving last month on his own terms despite a slew of championships here in the past.
News just broke on @umichtennis and MGoBlue.
