John Millman explains why Simona Halep is probably innocent in doping case

Fernando Verdasco was suspended for two months after forgetting to renew his TUE. The ITIA reduced the Spaniard's two-year ban from two years to two months. John Millman reveals he is not really a fan of Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) in sports because he feels it opens the doors for players to take a legal doping. Millman added this is why he feels Simona Halep is innocent - because she could have simply applied for a TUE instead.
