International Tennis Federation (ITF) v Ashley Kratzer

A decision in the case of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) against Ashley Kratzer has been issued by the ITF Independent Panel. Sport Resolutions is the independent secretariat to the Independent Panel.

On 18 March 2020, the ITF issued Ms Kratzer with a Notice of Charge for the Presence of Growth Hormone-Releasing Peptide 6 (GHRP-6) in a Sample collected In-Competition on 27 January 2020.
