Economic difficulties led Mariano Puerta to declare bankruptcy in a Buenos Aires court earlier this week, report Argentine press.Puerta was suspended for two years and had to pay back more than $800,000 after testing positive for a banned stimulant during his run to the 2005 French Open finalist. Since returning to the circuit, the 31-year-old Argentine has played challenger and futures events with limited success. The is currently ranked No. 312 and earned just over $20,000 this year.

Re: Puerta declares bankruptcy

So sad to hear that a player who reached such heights in his career, has taken such a painful fall. Sounds like retirement may be his next move....I do wish him well.

Had he had played fair back in 2005 and he wouldn't have been on this situation right now...

Re: Puerta declares bankruptcy

It's all who you are and where you come from. Puerta didn't make any money for the ATP.

He could always apply for a job as Nicolas Cages' accountant.

exactly........the ban was probably right but treat every culprit in the same way........why leave others? perhaps banning him for 2 years was right but a bit too tough on puerta if he was asked to pay back all the prize money he won.......we all make mistakes for which we repent later, they should have been a bit considerate when they were someones who were ready to let go a player with 8 slams.......ATP are plain money-minded, no doubt.......
