Why are everyone angry against Blake?

It is the RR which is the problem. Blake did have a better games differencial than anyone in the group and still couldnt get throught. He still took it like a gentleman in the interview I heard and said Korolev deserved his spot.

Both of them would have been injustified no matter ATPs decision. So why all anger against poor Blake?

Re: Why are everyone angry against Blake?

People have always had this undertone of anger towards Blake for whatever reason. Now people just have an excuse to openly talk crap about him. The incident happened, he made a mistake he's human and a tennis SINGLES (the most selfish athletes) player. I still support him and I don't give a cr*p about what anyone thinks and refuse to be a drone and jump on a hater bandwagon. It's really childish if you think about it.

Generally speaking. Most people around here don't like Blake personally. This situation is just a great excuse to hate him even more. It has a lot to do with Blake's "Goody Two Shoes" image.

What I don't get is Blake has a "Goody Two Shoes" image, but that is what the MEDIA chose to portray him as. James doesn't walk around saying "I'm perfect, I do no wrong" etc; So as soon as he makes a mistake people jump all over him, and it really isn't fairt. Guillermo Canas was a KNOWN drug cheat, and he doesn't get the flack that a clean competing James gets. Oh well, I won't stop supporting him regardless of what the hot commodity seems to be.

Re: Why are everyone angry against Blake?

Blake thought it was a fair decision to violate the rules, making him go to quarters.

As for Cañas, get a clue.

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.

That's what bothered me. And then he stuck to that after the quarter final spot was taken away.

I don't blame what happened on him, I just think he could have worded himself better or something.

The system and de villiers are the main responsible of the problem, but Blake sucking de villiers' ass, claiming that it was fair to change the rules in the middle of the tournament was pathetic.

Re: Why are everyone angry against Blake?

agreed. blake has always conducted himself with class on and off court. his dedication to charity, his tact and gentlemanly manner when dealing with fans and the media, the way he handled hewitt's racist remarks at the us open, the way he stuck up for the sydney tournament, are all indicators of his admirable character. i think we should cut blake some slack in this instance; it did seem like he was going through to win that match, and at the end of the day it was the atp's decision to send him through and not his. blake is the new agassi, except black

I agree, people are so quick to point out ONE mistake but ignore all of the positive aspects of his personality.
