French media does it again: Le Journal du Dimanche spreads rumours of Nadal's doping

http://www.marca.es/edicion/marca/te...lo/653726.html

This is not serious. How can they launch this accusation without any base?

For the French: what kind of newspaper is Le Journal du Dimanche?

Nalbandian - JMDP - Djokovic - Nadal - Mathieu - Verdasco - Coria - Tipsarevic - Nieminen - Calleri

It sounds like those magazines one can find in the supermarkets in the US (with headlines such as "UFO kidnapped three football player in Illinois during a match")

Re: French media does it again: Le Journal du Dimanche accuses Nadal of doping!

Without any proof it's difficult to take it seriously. However when I saw how fresh Nadal was after a 6-hours battle in Rome finals, I would n't be surprised. That was amazing. EPO is oldfashioned though, these guys must take something undetectable.

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

that's wrong!
nadal had a lot of fans, here
the article on armtrong is another story...
it is not because this newspaper wrote this article on rafa that 60 million people think the same thing or are jealous
it is necessary to stop generalizing the different point of views

I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT!

I wish they would just come forward with the cover up. I'm sick of this. I call for a Sesil like ban.

Even when the solid proof starts rolling in, the ATP will continue to play dumb.
The Fed/Nadal rivalry is the only thing tennis has going for it.
