Wickmayer may only receive warning

BRUSSELS -- U.S. Open semifinalist Yanina Wickmayer is unlikely to face a suspension for allegedly failing to report her whereabouts to anti-doping officials three times.

The prosecutor at a Belgian anti-doping tribunal on Thursday called only for a warning in principle. The tribunal will rule on the case on Nov. 5.

Wickmayer is playing in the Luxembourg Open and was not at the hearing in Belgium.

The 20-year-old Wickmayer has said she had trouble with her password in the computerized system overseen by the World Anti-Doping Agency. She also said registered mail at her home could not be signed off on since she was traveling to WTA tournaments.

She insisted she never missed an anti-doping test and her samples were always negative.
