Puerta's career is over?

Hi, I heard rumors that next week, ITF will announce Puerta's career will be over, since he'll receive a lifetime ban. Does anybody know more facts about this? Thanks!

Re: Puerta's career is over?

Here it is:
http://www.clarin.com/diario/2005/12...es/d-06101.htm
sorry it's in spanish, but it says that an independent antidoping porgram will have a meeting about this case on Tuesday. but ITF didn't say anything official.

I think we'll have to wait...

ARGENTINA

I hope this is not true. Puerta's already been through enough.

Re: Puerta's career is over?

If he's violated the Anti-Doping policy, in it's intended spirit, Puerta fully deserves to suffer the consequences. That's life, if you cheat on your job (depending on your line of work) the same will happen, he is not special because of his ties to the world of sports.

so you first f*ck up a player's life and then you allow the rest to the same he did... I don't think that's fair

I agree with you Atenea - and there is a huge amount of difference between knowingly taking a substance to enhance your performance, and making a genuine error in filling in forms about your medication - that may well be considered stupid or careless, but not evil or purposeful cheating. Trouble is, GM is full of people ready to shout "cheat" and "doper" and "scum" without any knowledge of the facts

Nothing official yet.
And he has not only been through a suspension, he has been through other tough things in his life before coming back to pro tennis So, not everything was because he "cheated" ...
