When I read the thread title, I thought he tested positive to HIV! Lucky for him it was only pseudoephidrine.

Re: Ivo Minar tested positive according to Czech federation

Is pseudoephedrine on the list of doping products ? This is normally used in case you are coughing ...

Re: Ivo Minar tested positive according to Czech federation

I remember I watched a match between Minar and Gasquet at Geneva Challenger 2003:

http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/...MA41&oId=G628#

If I had been asked at that time that both players would be caught for doping a few years later, I would not have believed it.

It is obvious that he would be on something, who would want to play Potro sober, hell i would need to be on something to face that machine.

It's a stimulant, like all of the adrenaline/ephedrine-derivatives, and it's on the WADA list for sure.

BTW, athletes are allowed to take these if they can proof the doping institutions that it's for proper medical purpose, i.e. on doctor's prescription (like many athletes suffering from asthma-related diseases do).
If Minar failed to do so, he's in trouble.

That said, the original article only said 'verdacht' - meaning suspected of. He's not condemned yet.

Re: Ivo Minar tested positive according to Czech federation

Pseudoephadrine is an ingredient in Night Nurse and other over the counter medicines for colds and flu, no prescription required. He probably had no idea.

If the label didn't contain the warning "do not take this medicine if you are an ATP tennis player" he could sue the manufacturers for loss of earnings.
