Former world number one Martina Hingis has been handed a two year ban after being found guilty of a doping offence.

The 27 year old Swiss star tested positive for cocaine while competing at Wimbledon last year.

International Tennis Federation (ITF) rejected her appeal and handed out a ban effective October 1, 2007.

Hingis, who has since retired from the sport, also had to forfeit ranking points and prize money from Wimbledon and any subsequent tournaments.
