Nuria Llagostera Vives, who was suspended for two years after testing positive for methamphetamine this July in Stanford, isn’t sure whether she will appeal the ITF Tribunal decision to the Court of Arbitration of Sport.

“I do not know if I have the strength to fight,” the 33-year-old told El Mundo Deportivo. "The only thing I can say is I'm very affected by this situation."

The 16-time doubles titlist is not eligible to play again until September 7, 2015.
