Ilie Nastase had two ten­nis bans re­duced fol­low­ing his ap­peal against sanc­tions handed out for foul-mouthed com­ments and bad be­hav­iour as Ro­ma­nia’s Fed Cup cap­tain last year. The In­ter­na­tional Ten­nis Fed­er­a­tion sus­pended the 71-year-old Nastase from the Fed Cup and Davis Cup un­til 2019 and from work­ing in an of­fi­cial ca­pac­ity in the sport un­til 2021. Both bans were re­duced by eight months by an in­de­pen­dent tri­bunal Wed­nes­day. His fine was dou­bled, though, to $20,000. He said he would not at­tend Romanian Fed Cup matches this week­end against Canada.
