The world number 23, who reached the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2007, admitted on Sunday to returning a positive sample at the Miami Masters in March.
A spokesman for the ITF said: “Richard Gasquet is under investigation for a doping-related offence and in line with WADA rules has been provisionally suspended.”
Gasquet will now attend a hearing in front of the ITF’s anti-doping commission on a date yet to be determined.
The Frenchman, who has vowed to prove his innocence, could face a lengthy ban if found guilty.
