Gasquet delays return from ban; ITF & WADA appeals the ruling

It looks like.

Not confirmed. Apparently cocaine or cannabis. The article says that he could be suspended 3 months, and if this is confirmed, he will miss Roland Garros.

http://www.rmc.fr/edito/sport/77917/...trole-positif/


L'equipe confirms the information. It's cocaine.

Quote:
Des traces de cocaïne ont été retrouvées dans l'échantillon A des urines de Richard Gasquet, contrôlé à Miami alors qu'il venait de déclarer forfait pour le tournoi. Ces traces, de l'ordre de 1,46 microgramme, soit supérieures au seuil de sensibilité de 0,5 demandé à tous les laboratoires accrédités, pourraient valoir au tennisman français, si la contre-expertise corroborait la prime analyse, une suspension de deux ans. En effet, la cocaïne figure parmi les stimulants majeurs interdits en compétition. Le joueur français, qui nie toute prise volontaire, n'a pas souhaité réagir à l'information, mais devrait très vite effectuer des analyses capillaires afin de démontrer qu'il n'est pas consommateur régulier. Enfin, le TEAM Lagardère devrait communiquer très vite à ce sujet, probablement demain en milieu de l'après-midi.
He could face a ban for 2 years. Gasquet denies that he has took voluntary this drug and should do an hair test to show that he is not a regular user.

Some news:

According to his father, Gasquet did not believe it when he learnt the news.

The FFT is sad and does not want to judge Gasquet yet.

Leconte does not want to defend Gasquet and say he should assume the consequences.

Pitkowski said that it was only an error of a young people and not a way to cheat.

According to L'Equipe , Gasquet was at a party in Miami the night before the controle. He was with Sinclair and his crew.

Not like it was performance enhancing.

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".

If it is true he is so stupid, the anti doping rules are really stringent.

But cocaine would mean 2 years, so it has to be only cannabis I guess.

Re: Gasquet tests positive !?

The article said that other players have endured only 3 months of suspension because of cocaine, as long as it's their first offence.

Hingis got two years. WTA sucks though.

Thank you for not reporting my post.

The article says that he could be suspended maybe only 3 months, because this is his first problem and they quote other men players who have tested positive for cocaine and have only had 3 months (Wilander, Novacek).

Re: Gasquet tests positive !?

Man, who gives a shit. So he smokes a joint every once in a while. Alot more important news/changes we need in tennis, rather than banning guys for betting peanuts on football matches and smoking some weed.
