Tennis player Wayne Odesnik has been banned for 15 years after the second doping violation of his career.
Wayne Odesnik’s urine samples tested positive for metabolites of the anabolic steroid methenolone and androst and growth hormone, which are prohibited substances under WADA’s code, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and the anti-doping program run by the international tennis federation announced on March 18.
He has played in three tournaments this season and is ranked No. 267 in the world.
Wayne Odesnik, 29, was born in South Africa and moved to the US at age 3. He has never won an ATP Tour title and reached a career-best ranking of No. 77 in 2009.
He served a one-year ban in 2010, when he was found with eight vials of HGH in his luggage when he arrived in Australia for a tournament.
Wayne Odesnik provided an out-of-competition urine sample to USADA on December 14, 2014, and two more samples to the ITF on December 17 and January 12.
