Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters on Saturday slammed the “extremely harsh” sanctions imposed on compatriots Xavier Malisse and Yanina Wickmayer for missing drug tests. Wickmayer and Malisse were handed one-year bans by the Flemish Doping Tribunal (VDT) for falling foul of doping regulations.

“To receive a one-year ban because of this seems extremely harsh and is potentially career-ending for both of them,” US Open champion Clijsters said on her Twitter message system.
