Malisse suspended ?

I have just heard that Malisse and Yanina Wickmayer were both suspended by Flemish Doping Tribunal for one year for failing to appear on anti-doping tests (Wickmayer three times in a row).

Anyone knows something more about this ?

I've read that on Belgian websites too:

He missed a test and didn't give his schedule twice.

Yes, that's what all the articles in French say, it's not contradictory.

Very unlucky for Wickmayer, her last few months in term of results have been stunning.

Yes, Malisse missed one test and failed to fill in his whereabouts twice and he'll be suspended for a year, he's still got a chance to go to the TAS and have the ban overturned though.

Re: Malisse suspended ?

The fallout from the Agassi book begins. Google translation:

Malisse suspended tennis and Wickmayer
BRUSSELS -- The Flemish Doping Tribunal has the tennis Yanina Wickmayer and Xavier Malisse suspended Thursday for one year. Wickmayer had three editions the whereabouts of his residence failed to comply with the anti-doping authorities. Malisse twice committed the violation but also missed a check.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Malisse suspended ?

At the beginning of the year when anti-doping labs got the contract to go after the tennis world, there was speculation that giving your whereabouts while playing in different places all over the world week after week with missed flights and different schedules depending how far you go in a tournament would be a problem -- I feel the players are very unlucky to be treated in this way, even if they tried their best missing some of these tests would be a statistical likelyhood.

Malisse may just hang up the rackets then. As for Wickmayer, a stunning blow to a promising career.

Re: Malisse suspended ?

If you miss 3 in a row, it's deliberate. After 1 you'd be very careful, after 2 you'd be completely anal about it.

There's going to be a lot more of this.

Re: Malisse suspended ?

Thanks to Agassi, I think Malisse will have a hard time overturning the decision. Really sorry for him.

Compare to other sports, tennis players have a much tougher to know their own whereabouts so far ahead of time. WADA should really review about the special situations and not applying the same rules for all amateur and professional sports.

Re: Malisse suspended ?

What a bunch of s***, poor Malisse (and Wickmayer).

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
