Re: Marin Cilic is unbanned!!!

The whole situation is farcical for reasons that can't be mentioned due to silly site rules, but still it's good to see Marin back He doesn't deserve to be made a scapegoat.

Hopefully he can return to a high level.

Re: Marin Cilic is unbanned!!!

Cilic: At Wimbledon, he says ITF put pressure on his lawyers for him to withdraw. And at the same time, he was told he wasn't allowed to talk about the positive test. Also says he had real knee problems (had to be treated shortly after) that required surgery two days after withdrawing.

About CAS decision, he says he's happy to see "there are still good people in this and that justice exists." Talks of a nightmare since start.

Says, "I don't wanna accuse anyone but I don't understand how we got to this point. I could have lost everything."

His team's take on case, which raises interesting questions (that CAS obviously took into account): he never was tested positive for nikethamide and no nikethamide was found in his body. All that was found was a metabolite of it, coming from the now infamous glucose tabs he said he took five days before Munich tournament. This metabolite is non-active. And the Nikethamide from which it comes is allowed out-of-competition.

Cilic's team doesn't get how ITF could say he was positive to this substance when he wasn't, and how he could be banned for a substance that is allowed out-of-competition, considering that he took it out-of-competition. The issue being the metabolite was still in his system (nanograms of it). For them it was a mistake by Marin, but it ended being blown out of proportion.

Cilic says he wants to forget all about it, and doesn't want to fight ITF to redress damages. He will work with Ivanisevic in main events of 2014. About Bercy and his 1st match: "I'm like an animal in a cage: I want to jump out. I know I haven't done anything wrong, and I'm no cheater."

Also, I was informed, Cilic will hold a press conference in Paris to finally speak publicly about a very difficult past five months.
How long did Gasquet get?


Does Troicki now realize the extreme stupidity of refusing to test no mater what the fear of needles/fear of health? If you test positive, the resultant penalty is not going to he as harsh.

Also, would like to mention that nannograms is usually what is found in urine tests, so it's no mitigation that only nanograms were found.

Re: Marin Cilic is unbanned!!!

http://www.tennisworldusa.org/Marin-...colo14290.html

"Tennis: Marin Cilic says that after serving a four-month doping ban, he was thrilled to be back on court for his first-round match at the Paris Masters.

"I felt like a kid playing for the first time," Cilic told reporters after he beat Igor Sijsling. "The feeling was amazing just to be back on the court, to be competing and I enjoyed every moment. My thoughts were just on how much I am enjoying it and how I am happy to be back on the court."

The Court of Arbitration of Sport decided to reduce Cilic’s original ban of nine months to four months after he appealed his suspension following a positive test for the banned stimulant nikethamide. The Croatian said that he had tested positive for the metabolite of nikethamide.

"It shows that nikethamide was in the system some time before and it's completely inactive and doesn't have any effect on the body," he said. “I'm definitely waiting for the CAS' decision in writing and waiting what the ITF will say with all these things.”


One more article from Sydney Morning Herald

http://www.smh.com.au/sport/tennis/m...029-2wcjm.html

"But behind the smiles was dismay at what the Cilic camp believes to be a basic error which could have cost their player much more than the four-month suspension he eventually served.

Cilic said he only learned in September that he had not actually tested positive for the banned stimulant nikethamide, but for its marker (metabolite) N-ethylnicotinamide.

"By letter dated June 10, the ITF wrote to Marin informing him inaccurately that the urine sample he provided (in Munich) on May 1 had tested positive for nikethamide," said his management.

"The only things detected in his sample were traces of the metabolite (which is) not a prohibited substance."

Cilic added: "Until September 13, I haven't realised or my lawyers that there was no nikethamide in my system at all ... and that was not even a part of my conversation at the first hearing.

"The tribunal over there hasn't realised that because nobody talked about it. And plus, the doctor that was making the analysis hasn't been called as a witness."

France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga said: "... we don't even know what's true, what's not true. It is quite a delicate subject.

"I just don't know who I have to believe anymore. Everybody is lying, even the institutions. I don't know if it's true, but this is the feeling I have."

A decision last week from the Court for Arbitration in Sport set aside an anti-doping tribunal decision, replacing it with time served (four months).

Settling back into tennis, Cilic confirmed the appointment of former Wimbledon winner Goran Ivanisevic as his coach,

"I'm just extremely satisfied. I can feel that things I worked in this time that I haven't been playing are working really well. They are fitting into my game, especially the serve, for which I'm extremely grateful to Goran in some ways," he said.

Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric


P.S. Watch out for Donna Vekic and Borna Coric, 2020. Hopman cup winners. - posted in 2011, let's see if it happens
