Ljubicic pissed at ITF

RG2004- he lost to Koubek who then tested positive for steroid use
RG2005- he lost to Puerta...

he feels cheated because there is nothing he can do to protect himself. he doesn't feel that the itf is doing a good job with testing players. here's the whole article in croatian. he's considering a law suit.

- Prema L'Equipeu, ispada da sam drugi put zaredom u Roland Garrosu izgubio od igrača koji je pao na doping testu. Lani je to bio Austrijanac Stefan Koubek, sada Mariano Puerta. Tekst je na trećoj strani uz listu svih Argentinaca koji su bili pozitivni. Ostao sam šokiran. Sada razmišljam o načinu na koji se zaštititi, jer ovo mi se već drugi put događa u Parizu. Kada na Olimpijskim igrama padneš na doping kontroli, izgubiš recimo broncu, koja pripadne četvrtom. No, na turnirima nemaš zaštitu. Što je s onima koji su izgubili od onih koji su bili pozitivni na kontroli? U Parizu ove godine mogao sam proći dva, tri kola, ždrijeb je bio sasvim solidan, ako isključim prvo kolo. Puerta... Mora ti proći kroz glavu to što je proveo 18 i pol sati na terenu, a ispao je najizdžljiviji s onakvom konstitucijom. Ne želim prejudicirati, ali ako se sve pokaže točnim, razmišljam o tužbi ITF-a. Konzultirat ću se s odvjetnicima po tom pitanju. Svi se pokušavamo boriti, a poslije ovakvih slučajeva osjećamo se prevarenima. S dobrim rezultatom u Roland Garrosu danas sam mogao biti među deset najboljih na svijetu.

Re: Ljubicic pissed at ITF

too lazy lol. here the basic jist:

- ivan was shocked when he read l'equipe today
- he is worried that there is no way for players to proctect themselves against this. in the olympics, if someone who won a medal is caught for doping, the next player gets their medal, in tournaments a loss is a loss
- he feels like he could have won a couple of rounds in paris this year, he had a good draw except for the first round
- puerta was the fittest player after 18 1/2 hours on court because of what he supposedly took
- ivan doesn't want to judge ahead of time, but if puerta is found guilty, he is thinking about suing the itf.
- "we all try to fight and, after something like this, we feel cheated"
- "with a better result at rg, i could be in the top10 right now"

they don't test players after every match. some players only get test a couple of times a year

Re: Ljubicic pissed at ITF

thanks croat123

I doubt he'd have much of a case to be honest, I understand why he'd feel hard done by but I can't see them dishing out money to every player Puerta has beaten.

Re: Ljubicic pissed at ITF

Ljubicic should keep his mouth closed until there's official statements from ITF and RG.

Yes, he lost to Puerta in first round but it's still 'what if'. He might have a good draw but didn't mean he would pass 2nd round. Moreover, he might still lost to Puerta whether he's doped or not.

Re: Ljubicic pissed at ITF

I think this is more than just a little inappropriate of Ljubicic. The reports are not yet official.

i guess we will never know, cuz of a cheater, who knows he might of won, that match and made it to the final. we will never know

when Puerta is found guilty, all this winning from RG-present should be donated to charity.

Loserbitch needs to STFU, steroids or powerful stimulants are of marginal benefot to tennis players, those that take them are really kidding themselves. Loserbitch would not have won those matches anyway.

"When Puerta is found guilty". You already sentenced him when the trial has not yet started.

I personally think it's very likely that Puerta is guilty but I will not judge him NOW and sentenced him. Let's wait and see.

You have no idea with steroids do, do you? who needs power when you can run around the court for 5hours without a drop of sweat.
