Haha, Guga is such a typical surfer dude.

(But if he does in fact smoke pot, then he must have started recently, because it's on the forbidden substances list, isn't it? Which is st I don't understand, as Cannabis is pretty much the opposite of performance enhancer )

I've once heard a story from someone inside the CBT that they were doing doping controls in the Brazilian athletes before the Sydney Olympics, and Guga got caught with THC on his urine. Since it was the CBT and not the ATP, it got covered up. Don't know if it's true or not tbh, but the story seemed reliable.

But the biggest pothead on the tour is Younes.

Younes likes the herbal infusion, but Koubek isn't adverse to it either.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Well, if that's true, then it's good to know the CBT made itself useful at least once in its life. :-P

And I wonder what it says about Jo-Wilfried that his favourite players are Younes and Yannick Noah. (other than that Jo is awesomely cool )

Ferrer is rumoured to be a smoker. I never saw a reliable source so I don't know whether it's true. It surely made people laugh though.

Can't imagine that there isn't a single one to be found in the top 100. A lot of top footballers smoke, surely there are a couple tennis players as well.

Re: Are there players in the top 100 who smoke ?

As far as i know, Vulturrer enjoys polluting his lungs. A disgusting habit for a professional sportsman and one who considers himself a role-model. Not a good look for tennis when one of it's highest ranked players is an avid smoker who support huge corporations that don't give a damn about the well-being of humans. It's an unhealthy habit and not something that should be promoted on the world stage.

There are pictures of him divulging in his unhealthy habit. Its a dirty secret that many tennis fans know of.

Surprises me about Ferrer, kinda ruins his image as hard working, 100% professional athlete.
