Tennis player Osorio Hernández suspended in doping case

LONDON (AP) — Tennis player Juan-Carlos Osorio Hernández of Ecuador has been provisionally suspended for failing a doping test at a competition, the International Tennis Integrity Agency said Tuesday.

The 39-year-old Osorio Hernández tested positive for methasterone, which is an anabolic steroid, while competing at a tournament in his home country in June, the ITIA said.

The unranked Osorio Hernández is suspended from playing or attending events while the case is prosecuted.

Osorio Hernández competed at a second-tier event in the capital Quito, where he lost in the first round of qualifying.
