Federer talks about doping and argentinians

http://www.clarin.com/diario/2005/10...m-01020265.htm

It´s in spanish...I´m too lazy right to translate it right now....

But mainly Roger says that People doesn´t have to generalize, because a few argies are positive, you don´t have to start judging every argentinian or the country, and it´s a mistake saying that they are all cheaters...

He said also that they have to wait becase they don´t really knoe what happened at the FO....They only know someone tested positive...And that they have to be very careful because there are a lot of test, and also said that he is disapointed that someone tested positive at the french open...he is dissapointed...

That´s it....anyone else heard something else?

Re: Federer talks about doping and argentinians

He would make a good politician. He didn't really say much at all I guess. ( I did not translate it Gonzalo-just took your English bit). I thought Dent said it better and with class. I will try and use a translater to make sure I didn't miss anything and speak out of turn.
Thanks!

Very diplomatic of Roger.

Re: Federer talks about doping and argentinians

My spanish isn't so good but when I read the article my interpretation was a bit different To me the article said:

"It didn't make me happy to hear someone doped in Roland Garros. It's not official yet but I'm disappointed. I mean after all there are so many controls that just cease to exist on the ATP so I can't understand how someone could actually get caught"

But we must be careful we can't accuse all Argentine players or attack the country. Just Nalbandian. Given his inherent lack of talent it’s the only explanation of why he had so many wins against me. So no, it's a mistake to attack Argentina, the country, saying that all of them are cheaters, it’s just one manchild."

I didn't bother to translate the rest... something about him domianting and players hating but he didn't care because "Yo esté Federer bíatch!" I don't know really what that means??

Re: Federer talks about doping and argentinians

dkw, no, it doesn't mean that. At least not the second part.

It says: "I wasn't happy when I heard someone had doped in Roland Garros. It's not oficial yet, we don't know exactly what happened and we have to wait. We have to be very careful because we get controlled a lot, and the controls are very effective."

Re: Federer talks about doping and argentinians

The first 2 paragraphs and I'm off to bed.

Quote:
“You can’t accuse all the Argentine players nor can you judge an entire country. I believe that these are individual cases, and not everyone is guilty” said Roger Federer before the start of the TMS Madrid which starts next week.

“I was not happy to hear that someone doped up at RG. It’s still not official, we don’t know what happened, and we have to wait. We have to be very careful because there are lots of controls which are very effective” added the world’s number 1.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

be warned. Trini humor is not especially appreciated on this board.

Re: Federer talks about doping and argentinians

I think Federer ws very fair. He said what any reasonable person would in the circumstances. Unlike Ljubicic he didn't want to jump to any conclusion. The stance he took in this case,makes me appreciate Federer more. I just hope that everyone will lay off Mariano and all Argentinians, and until we have official confirmation of this case no one should jump to any conclusion. I cannot for the life of me understand how anyone can condemn one nationality based on a few cases of doping, or alleged doping carried out by some players of that country. I for one will always believe in the innocence of Mariano, or any other player for that matter, until guilt is proved without a shadow of doubt.
