Richard Gasquet's fate to be decided in December

Richard Gasquet arrived for a hearing before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) yesterday in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The Frenchman was tested positive for cocaine during the Miami Masters in March and was provisionally suspended in May before serving a two and a half month retroactive ban.

Gasquet claimed that the cocaine entered his system only when he kissed a young woman in a Miami nightclub.

During the seven-hour hearing, Gasquet was given chance to speak.

The verdict is expected in early December.

Gasquet, who once peaked at no. 7 and currently ranked at no. 53, declined to speak as he left the court.
