Australian tennis player PAT CASH has let slip about his past drug use - after he confessed to baking marijuana cookies in his sporting heyday during a U.K. radio interview.

The sporting ace - who has previously admitted to smoking cannabis on his way to winning the 1987 Wimbledon tennis championships - made the contentious revelation during a live interview with fellow tennis star Michael Stich, while they were discussing fellow tennis stars' hobbies on BBC Radio Five Live.

Cash said: "The only think I used to bake was a bit of hash cookies in the old days." But bosses at the station are not impressed and have since warned the star to be more cautious on air.

A spokeswoman for Radio Five Live says, "Pat has been asked to be more careful on air."

This is where Lendl got it all wrong. The way to play successfully on grass is to smoke it :smoke:

On a somewhat related note, Wimbledon apparently fired their hawkeye operator after he was caught trying to bring marihuana into the complex.

I hope to see everyone saying the same things they have said to Cañas or Puerta.

WTF? Canas and Puerta are cheats, how can you compare the two? These guys have taken drugs to have an adavntage other other opponents? I think you must of been smoking some Cash's green if you think you can compare the two.

If anything, Cash's smoking weed would have had an adverse effect.

I would think, that cannabis is more likely to inhibit match play rather than enhance it.

Agassi could wake up out of a coma and still hit the ball flush all day long. :)

I watched him practice a few times at the Open and the guy would hit the ball flush with the center part of his racquet for incredibly long stretches of time and these weren't just rally shots.

He was practicing once in either '94 or '95 and he wanted to hit some lines with the BH and FH. Literally dozens of shots right on the lines.

Cash would have said that knowing full well that it would cause controversy. every Wimbledon he pulls out any headline grabbing story he can come up with. He's a pain in the arse.

It's not like he wouldn't have done much harder drugs either :o

I agree. There's always something every year. His attention seeking is tragic but he needs the money. One year he went on a rant about women's tennis getting personal and insulting players who achieved a lot more than him, one year he made some crass joke about Lleyton marrying Bec Hewitt because she was "up the duff", this year he was talking about depression, how he considered suicide, and his messy divorce in the papers. I don't think anyone has played on the "Wimbledon champion" tag more than Pat, even if that win is now 20 years ago.

He needs the money though. He admitted himself he is only on the seniors tour because the money's run out and he still needs to earn money somehow. I guess saying some controversial things gets him noticed and more interview opportunities but it's getting tiresome.

Cash, didn't mind a bit of nasal candy either, but it's not like pot is performance enhancing.

What`s so crass about "up the duff":confused:
...
Anyway with all the tiresome rain at this year`s Wimby I`d rather listen to Pat Cash & his `high cookies` story than Judy Murray talk about her `marvelous sons`:eek:

Cash is quite entertaining~~~ just don`t take him seriously, he doesn`t expect people to take every comment as an insightful spin on Fed`s date with destiny, or Nadal`s capris issues;)


BTW, depression is a serious issue~~ i think it`s good for celebs to talk about their mental problems, helps the public to see them as the average Joe:cool:

...
Cash was unlucky not to make more money out of tennis, as his era was just before the big bucks came in.. Also he was unlucky not to be a multi-slam winner [alteast should have one AO to his name].
Pat was a father of 2-kids out of wedlock at age 21yrs~~ that added to the pressure on his shoulders & also financially it took it`s toll.. None of the old boys seemed to want to help Cash out, because they didn`t approve of his foul mouth-> not his fault that he grew up in Ringwood:sad:

Man you cant please some people, the same guys moaning on here about how Cash always wants the limelight and always trying to stir the pot up, are the same mugs who would moan if he wasnt intresting.

I agree with the last poster, Cash is crazy and entertaining and id love to hear some more crazy stories or shall we just listen to more shite about how Jamie Murray is holding the whole countrys expectations on his shouldrs wtf? Who cares about Jamie Murray?
