2 years, and wasn't it nandrolone?

He was a very dangerous player on the faster surfaces...I remember Henman having real problems with him on the grass (and losing, I think).

On February 13, 2006 the International Tennis Federation (ITF) announced Beck had tested positive for the steroid clenbuterol during the 2005 Davis Cup semifinal against Argentina. As a consequence, the ITF suspended him from the game for two years until October 31, 2007.

Finally, I though that he would accept that WC into Bratislava CH that the director offered him, but he said no. And now he plays Tunis? :p Strange, but c'mon Karol, get back to the top and even higheer. (although it would be veeeeeeery tough!)

GOOD LUCK!

VELO SCESCE! :p

How old is he now? 30?

Good to see him back. Good fast court player who could hit winners off both wings. Useless on clay.

The timing of his ban was so annoying. Any earlier and Argentina would have made the final, any later and Slovakia would have beaten Croatia.

He's still fairly young.. 25. So he has plenty of time to get his game back, get fit and then work his way back up the rankings...

I never saw this guy play.. any chance someone could give me a short synopsis of his game... :)

I hope he can make a succesful comeback, he seemed to be completely forgotten once he was banned. The drug he testes positive for, clenbuterol, is a potent drug that has a wide range of effects and uses including asthma medication in some countries as well as a diet drug and can have performance-enhancing effects, it would be hard to prove whether he was fully to blame.

Disgusting doping cheater who should be banned for life. Hate to see jerks like this let back into the game, I hope he ends up having a major injury that puts him out for a full season or a long amount of time. Lets hope it happens soon.

Why do you hate him so much?
Clenbuterol has many uses like treatment for asthma

I'm glad everyone enjoys keeping track of my name changes. You've missed a lot of them, though.

Karol denied wrongdoing. I don't know if he did it or not, but he's served his time.

C'mon Karol! It would be sweet to win the entire tournament in your return. :D But I'll take a few main draw wins. Missing two years is going to be really hard on him, but he's still relatively young and can make his way back up. He was really improving when all this happened. Good luck!

His serve is one of the weakest parts of his game.

Mostly a baseliner, not tons of power but he had the ability to make some decent winners. Pretty fast. He definitely did his best on faster surfaces. He beat Henman on grass and Haas at the Aussie one year. Made 4th round at the USO.

He has a solid game, not spectacular but no major weaknesses.

Yes as Fred says, I hate proven dopers no matter who they are. Karol Beck is certainly no innocent person, and a total drugs cheat. He is also one of the most boring players I have ever seen, has nothing much to offer.

Also why do you think athletes take drugs like that for performance enhancing effects (Clenbuterol) ? Because they think the same as you "it's only a substance for asthma, so no one will think I'm taking it for ergogenic effects and I can worm out of it" Of course these dopers are just idiots, because they are going to get punished no matter what illegal substance it is. Anyway lets hope something happens to doper boy, so that he is permanently put out of the game.

Yep, and I didn't say that they weren't right in punish Beck. It's (almost) impossible to define which doping has the objective of increase the perfomance and which doping happened because the player wasn't smart enough to read the prescription and search that the substance is illegal.
I don't know if this happens but they should have a guide with a list of all prohibited substanced by COI/ATP/ITF/etc...
