Mariano, Number 1 Seed, in the Land of the Rising Sun

Here is the draw for next week's tournament in Japan. I was pretty convinced that Mariano would withdraw from here with exhaustion, but as he has a Bye in the first round, and probably doesn't need to play til Wednesday (or even Thursday!) - I guess he will give it a go. Vamos Mariano

Re: Mariano, Number 1 Seed, in the Land of the Rising Sun

Yeah I also supposed he would not play in Japan, but he might rest and give it a try (I think organizers might pay him much more, there were too many withdrawals) and he needs to earn points if he wants to reach Shangai.
Go Mariano!!!!

Re: Mariano, Number 1 Seed, in the Land of the Rising Sun

I really can't believe this

Quote:
The report confirms that the A and B sample has recorded positive result for the major stimulant etilefrine, a stimulant normally used for cases of hypertension and is regarded as a product worth a two-year man in a primary case.

Puerta, 27, has already been banned for nine months following a positive test in October 2003 and should the latest test prove conclusive, then he will become the first ATP player to be handed a life ban.

Puerta, who has enjoyed a meteoric rise from a world ranking of 400 in 2004 to 9 in 2005, could become the fifth Argentine player to fail a dope test after Juan Ignacio Chela (2000), Guillermo Coria (2001), Martin Rodriguez (2003) and Guillermo Canas (2005).

The player, who is currently competing at the Japan Open in Tokyo, is reported to have told his staff that he took medication for a bout of flu at Roland Garros.

Re: Mariano, Number 1 Seed, in the Land of the Rising Sun

I'm so sorry, really. I couldn't believe it when I read the article this morning.
Here is the whole report in L'Équipe as a pdf (if it doesn't work when you klick on it, download it with right click / "Save target as", it should work):
