I fatti. Il 16 febbraio di quest’anno Sara Errani consegna un campione d’urina all’addetto al controllo antidoping. Il campione viene diviso in due parti “A” e “B” e il campione “A” viene portato al laboratorio accreditato WADA di Montréal. Il campione A risulta positivo al test sul letrozolo e il 7 marzo la professoressa Christiane Ayotte riporta il risultato all’ITF. Come vuole il protocollo della Federazione Internazionale, il campione viene sottoposto a controanalisi e il 2 maggio il verdetto viene confermato: nel corpo di Sara Errani si trova letrozolo nella percentuale di 65 nanogrammi per millilitri.

Thank you. Thank you.
I told all my friends I was just gonna come up here and say ‘thank you’ and walk off. I can’t. There’s no way. I got too many people I gotta thank. In all the videos, you never just saw me; you saw Scottie Pippen. Every Championship I won. I’ve had a lot of questions over the last four weeks, and everybody’s saying well ‘why’d you pick David Thompson?’ I know why, and David knows why, and maybe you guys don’t know why, but as I grew up in North Carolina, I was 11 years old in 1974 I think when you guys won the championship. And uh, I was an anti-Carolina guy – I hated UNC, and here I ended up at UNC. But I was in love with David Thompson. Not just for the game of basketball, but in terms of what he represented. You know, we all – as Vivienne said – we go through our trials and tribulations. And, he did. And I was inspired by him. And when I called him and asked him to uh, stand up for me, I know …
