New Jersey:

Four years after Argentine tennis player Guillermo Canas sued a supplement manufacturer on grounds that their products were contaminated with steroids, the case has come to trial.

That contamination allegedly led to the former World No 3 testing positive and being suspended for doping by the ATP Tour in 2001.

The trial has begun in a New Jersey court and is expected to last 10 days.

Coria is seeking to recover in excess of $10 million in lost prize money and endorsements and if he wins he could be the first top professional athlete to show that testing positive for banned substance was caused by product contamination.
