Marin Cilic 'pulled out of Wimbledon due to suspension, not injury'

The International Tennis Federation's anti-doping tribunal has reportedly revealed that Marin Cilic's claim that he pulled out midway through Wimbledon due to injury was false.

The 24-year-old, who was one of seven players to withdraw from the tournament, claimed that he had a knee injury when he pulled out of his match against Kenny de Schepper.

However, it has been revealed that Cilic was in fact given a provisional suspension for testing positive in a drugs test, but used an injury as the reason to avoid "adverse publicity", according to BBC Sport.

Cilic was banned for nine months by the ITF for a doping violation.
