Coach defends player over cannabis test
From correspondents in Bratislava

SLOVAKIA Davis Cup captain Miroslav Mecir leapt to the defence of Karol Beck on Friday after the player was forced to battle allegations that he had failed a drugs test.

Beck, the world No.57, had to skip the opening singles rubber of the Davis Cup final against Croatia with his team insisting the 23-year-old had been ruled out through a knee injury.

Beck has also been ruled out of Saturday's doubles which could prove crucial to the tie which stands at 1-1 after the opening singles were shared.

Re: beck has also been ruled out of doubles

So Beck is a pothead? I thought Simon Larose was an apt example of what not to do...

Re: beck has also been ruled out of doubles

It is a prohibited substance, but is not performance-enhancing, so he will probably only get a slap on the wrist. A lot of sports don't even regard cannabis to be an illegal substance. Still, what an idiot...

Re: beck has also been ruled out of doubles

What do they do to pot heads? I personally don't think it's that bad, but then again every one in my high school is constantly high

+ Marat - Mario - Richard - Rafael - Gael - Janko - Kiwi - Gaston - Novak +

You really think you're that cool because you support a player who is #1 in the world (and I can't help but notice that you do so AFTER he became #1)?

You can think that Karol is a loser all you want, but he's won over a million dollars in prize money and has a successful career. What do you do? Brag over someone's accomplishments on a message board who doesn't even know you exist. Cheers!
