CILIC CHUCKED OUT.
The Croatian's doping violation came when he tested positive for nikethamide, a stimulant, at the BMW Open in Munich in May.
The 24-year-old's ban was backdated to May 1, the date he provided the sample. Cilic was charged over the doping violation under Article 2.1 although he argued the banned substance was in his system after taking Coramine glucose tablets that had been purchased for him from a pharmacy.
A statement from the ITF also read: "It was determined that Mr Cilic's results at the 2013 BMW Open event should be disqualified, with resulting forfeiture of the ranking points and prize money."
