I don't think that's the point here. Even though it can enhance the player's performance, even if for a few minutes, I don't think a sportsman would be stupid enough to snort cocaine before a match, when there are other drugs much harder to get caught with and with a much longer enhancing effect (and without the collateral effects cocaine usage brings) around. People that use cocaine (and that includes sportsmen), use it with a social purpose, not with a performance-enhancing purpose in sport activities.

At this point, Martina should be worried not about being deemed a cheater, but a cocaine user.

Re: Martina Hingis Tested Positive For Cocaine!

This could very well be a false positive, let's hope we hear the truth soon. Honestly, if she did coke I would still like her...She is still a beautiful lady with a lot of talent and a lovely personality so that is just my opinion.

Re: Martina Hingis Tested Positive For Cocaine!

I actually believe her when she says she didn't do it. She's never been a party girl, and she's much too smart and experienced a competitior to think she'd get away with drug use during a slam.

She's right to retire, sad to say. 100% of her energies will be consumed by fighting the accusations.

Did Radek put the coke in the Hingis juice?

She said that somebody put it in her drink becasue she never used drugs, yeah right...

But seriously, there must have been some coke users on the atp also i will start a serious discussion here:

are there enough tests on the tour? because i heared that some players are never tested in a year. so i guess not. the should be tested at every tournament once i think

Rosenberg Bremens Hattrick hero!!

Re: Did Radek put the coke in the Hingis juice?

When/where did she say that someone put coke in her drink? This wasn't in her statement at the press conference.

Re: Martina Hingis Tested Positive For Cocaine!

I know that we do drug testing where I work, but I'm not involved with that. However, I overhear stuff. One of our Docs had said that if he gets a positive cocaine result, he calls the person and asks them exactly what kind of medications they take, just in case.
I'm thinking either she was taking some sort of medication prescribed to her that caused the positive test or someone switched the urine. There is also a possibility of a false positive with the test. Smart of her to have her hair tested.

You must be mad. Martina Hingis made history and is one of the five best players of all the WTA history. Do you really think she'll mess everything consuming COCAINE?

Re: Did Radek put the coke in the Hingis juice?

She ought to have known after 15 years of playing and being tested that drugs would have come up on a urine test. So that is the part which baffles me. Knowing she'd be tested the next day, why would she consume?
Still, there are two positives.... it is hard to just put that out of the equation.
