Serbia’s Victor Troicki has been banned for 18 months for failing to provide a blood sample during a drug test.

Troicki was part of 2010 Davis Cup-winning team alongside world number 1 Novak Djokovic and made it to the third-round of last month’s Wimbledon.

The world number 53 declined to take a blood test at the Monte Carlo Masters in April, providing a urine sample to testers but objected to giving blood sample.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) last night announced that the player has been banned until January 2015 in a statement that read:

“Victor Troicki has been found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation under article 23 of the tennis anti-doping programme (refusing or failing without compelling justification to submit to sample collection).”

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Troicki has denied any wrongdoing and said he will appeal against the sanction.

“I put my trust in the Court of Arbitration of Sports in Lausanne (Switzerland), I really hope they will look for the truth and find it, which is only one,” he told his official website.

The Serb has been on tour since 2006, winning his only title in Moscow three years ago.
