Simona Halep is remaining upbeat and positive as she faces the tough challenge of proving her innocence to return to tennis.
Halep is currently banned from tennis due to testing positive for a banned substance and she is preparing a defence to try and prove her innocence. While that tricky process unfolds, Halep is remaining positive and upbeat according to her social media activity.
Halep has maintained her innocence about not taking anything intentionally and there is a lot of those who believe her. WTA Chief Steve Simon said:
Millman believes Verdasco TUE ban proves Halep is innocent: "If she really wanted to enhance her performance with a substance she could have just gone down a TUE path"
"I believe she didn't do something intentionally. That said, I strongly believe in our anti-doping program, and I think it's good, and our players support it too. And if you ask Simona, she supports it. I am very confident that as we move forward in the process, the truth will come out and we will address it accordingly. But I have a lot of sympathy for Simona, because I would never question her integrity."
She's back on the court as well.
