Smile Cañas wins Montevideo Challenger ($75K, clay), up to 214 in the rankings

Willy continues his metheoric rise up the rankings. He jumps 103 places following his victory at the Montevideo Challenger .

After winning all his previous matches very easily, he had to fight in the final but defeated Nico Lapentti 2-6 6-3 7-6(3)

The AO should give him a WC... at least into the quallies. That probably won't happen but at this rate Willy will have no trouble getting into the main draw of RG. Hopefully he'll be back in the top 20 by the end of 2007.

He doesn't need a WC to qualies as his ranking already is good enough to get in and all it is now, is just a question of what is ranking will be at the end of the season.

Training with Acasuso, Calleri and some of the other Argentine top players has helped him and I wonder if the ATP have been using the correct procedures to test him. I wonder how the player reaction when he is back playing events on the main tour.

As for the people who call him a cheat, well there are reasons the suspension was reduced.

If the CAS did not think it was worthy to reduce his suspension, then they would have not done so.

The verdict


http://www.itftennis.com/antidoping/...e.asp?id=16515

Court of Arbitration for Sport reduces suspension of Guillermo Canas to 15 months

Lausanne, 23 May 2006 – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has partially upheld the appeal filed by the Argentinean tennis player, Guillermo Cañas, against the decision of the Anti-doping Tribunal of the ATP Tour of 7 August 2005.

The Tribunal of the ATP Tour found that Guillermo Cañas tested positive for the prohibited substance hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) at the ATP tournament “Abierto Mexicano de Tenis” in Acapulco, Mexico on 21 February 2005. As a consequence, the Tribunal of the ATP Tour disqualified the Player from the Acapulco tournament and suspended him for a period of two years, effective from 11 June 2005. Furthermore, the Tribunal ordered the disqualification of the Player from the competitions he took part in between 21 February 2005 and 11 June 2005, with the exception of Roland Garros, a tournament during which he tested negative.

The Player filed an appeal with the CAS on 29 August 2005 to request the annulment of the ATP Tour decision. This matter was submitted to a panel composed of Ms Maidie Oliveau (USA), President, Mr Christopher Campbell (USA) and Mr Yves Fortier (Canada). The parties, their representatives and witnesses were heard by the Panel at a hearing in New York on 19 and 20 January 2006.

On the basis of the evidence submitted by the parties, the Panel of arbitrators found that the Player ingested a medication called “Rofucal”, delivered to him by the tournament staff in Acapulco although the tournament doctor prescribed a different medication for him. G.Cañas took the medication he received without reviewing the content of the box, even though he knew that the medication had been through several hands before being delivered to him. The Panel noted also that the doping control form completed by the Player did not list the medication prescribed by the tournament doctor.

The Panel considered that the Player was entitled to rely on the expertise of independent medical staff provided by the organisers of the Acapulco tournament. The arbitrators also emphasised the fact that a mistake in the delivery of the medication was made not by the Player, but rather by the tournament staff. However, the Panel considered that the Player had a duty of utmost caution after visiting the tournament doctor to ascertain whether the medication received was indeed the medication prescribed by the doctor.


In conclusion, the Panel was of the opinion that the negligence committed by the Player was not significant and decided that his period of ineligibility should be reduced by nine months, from two years to fifteen months. The suspension of G. Cañas which started on 11 June 2005 will come to end on 10 September 2006. In addition, the Panel decided that other than with respect to the Acapulco tournament, none of the results achieved by G.Canãs before 11 June 2005 should be disqualified.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

A ranking of 214 is enough to get into AO qualies? . The end of the season is around the corner, but he can only go up as he has 0 points to defend in the next 10 months .

Yes. This does not make him a cheat. Negligent, but not a cheat and he paid his dues for that negligence.

Thanks GWH.

Re: Cañas wins Montevideo Challenger ($75K, clay), up to 214 in the rankings

Canas is "the comeback's man"
This is the third time, when he strives back to first ranks.
Here is his ranking in last 7 years at the end of the season: 73 - 227 - 15 - 15 - 272 - 12 - 102.
In this year he was no. 514 on September 18th.

dont know the details...but i do know he suffered a long ban, and the atp realized they made a mistake. it was them who supplied the contaminated supplements. they issued an apology but bohdan was already to old by then to compete.

they didnt compensate him in anyway...its like a person who goes to prison for 15 years during his youth, and the govt realizes it made a mistake...they are just like "sorry, sucks for you" dont compensate him in any way, and all the youth disappears.

anyways, he became the model case in the rusedski saga as well because he also tested positive for nandrolone.

Yes, well considering that there 104 direct entry places and 16 qualifiers that are placed and that 16 come out of 128 players, therefore 214 is high enough to get in.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
