Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Lol, check out Gulbis' return stats: 25% vs 1st serve, 31% (!!) vs 2nd. How is that even possible against Foggy's serve?

Foggy is atrocious on anything but the slowest hard court as well.

Gulbis is a worse version of Arazi, can play quality tennis only in front of full stadium. I suppose 10 people watched his match against Fognini and Gulbis couldn't accept it

Re: Shanghai R1: Fognini def. Gulbis 7-6(3) 6-3

Expected. Gulbis was bound to hand himself with his errors against an odd player like Fognini

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

Once a ballbasher, always a ballbasher. Gulbis needs to get this printed on his nike shoes.
