Ljubicic pissed at ITF

RG2004- he lost to Koubek who then tested positive for steroid use
RG2005- he lost to Puerta...

he feels cheated because there is nothing he can do to protect himself. he doesn't feel that the itf is doing a good job with testing players. here's the whole article in croatian. he's considering a law suit.

- Prema L'Equipeu, ispada da sam drugi put zaredom u Roland Garrosu izgubio od igrača koji je pao na doping testu. Lani je to bio Austrijanac Stefan Koubek, sada Mariano Puerta. Tekst je na trećoj strani uz listu svih Argentinaca koji su bili pozitivni. Ostao sam šokiran. Sada razmišljam o načinu na koji se zaštititi, jer ovo mi se već drugi put događa u Parizu. Kada na Olimpijskim igrama padneš na doping kontroli, izgubiš recimo broncu, koja pripadne četvrtom. No, na turnirima nemaš zaštitu. Što je s onima koji su izgubili od onih koji su bili pozitivni na kontroli? U Parizu ove godine mogao sam proći dva, tri kola, ždrijeb je bio sasvim solidan, ako isključim prvo kolo. Puerta... Mora ti proći kroz glavu to što je proveo 18 i pol sati na terenu, a ispao je najizdžljiviji s onakvom konstitucijom. Ne želim prejudicirati, ali ako se sve pokaže točnim, razmišljam o tužbi ITF-a. Konzultirat ću se s odvjetnicima po tom pitanju. Svi se pokušavamo boriti, a poslije ovakvih slučajeva osjećamo se prevarenima. S dobrim rezultatom u Roland Garrosu danas sam mogao biti među deset najboljih na svijetu.

too lazy lol. here the basic jist:

- ivan was shocked when he read l'equipe today
- he is worried that there is no way for players to proctect themselves against this. in the olympics, if someone who won a medal is caught for doping, the next player gets their medal, in tournaments a loss is a loss
- he feels like he could have won a couple of rounds in paris this year, he had a good draw except for the first round
- puerta was the fittest player after 18 1/2 hours on court because of what he supposedly took
- ivan doesn't want to judge ahead of time, but if puerta is found guilty, he is thinking about suing the itf.
- "we all try to fight and, after something like this, we feel cheated"
- "with a better result at rg, i could be in the top10 right now"

well first of all we do not know yet if puerta cheated even if he tested postivie really
and second of all puerta tested positive in the final
and lbjucic played puerta in first round so i do not know why lbjubicic is pissed with puerta

even i think koubek tested positive against nalbandian not against him

Ljubicic should keep his mouth closed until there's official statements from ITF and RG.

Yes, he lost to Puerta in first round but it's still 'what if'. He might have a good draw but didn't mean he would pass 2nd round. Moreover, he might still lost to Puerta whether he's doped or not.

"When Puerta is found guilty". You already sentenced him when the trial has not yet started.

I personally think it's very likely that Puerta is guilty but I will not judge him NOW and sentenced him. Let's wait and see.

Rafa had no problem beating Puerta at RG (although I'm skeptical of a French newspaper report saying Mariano doped when the ATP hasn't contacted him at all), and he also took out Canas at Acapulco (the tournament where he got caught) Next up will be Rafa taking on Barry Bonds in a home run hitting contest, and sprinting with Ben Johnson.

I think it's totally inappropriate of Ljubicic to make a statement,as the one quoted above, just on the basis of an article in L'equipe. What if he was wrongly accused? How would he feel. I think we must give Mariano the benefit of the doubt and not judge him guilty before all the ITF makes an official announcement. Also for those who are claiming that Mariano is guilty, how come he had good results all year, particularly in BA and winning in Casablanca without testing positive.

10-05-2005, 10:58 PM
here is full translation

According to L'Equipe, it looks like I lost for the 2nd time in a row in Roland Garros to player who failed drug test. Last year it was Stefan Koubek, now Mariano Puerta. Text is on the 3rd page by the list of all Argentinians who were positive. Now I am thinking of a way to protect myself, because it´s already the 2nd time that this is happening to me in Paris. When you fail drug test on Olyimpic games, you lose let´s say bronze, which goes to 4th ranked. But on tournaments you don´t have protection. What happens with those who lost to players that have been positive on testing? This year in Paris I could have passed 2 or 3 rounds, draw was solid, if I count out the 1st round. Puerta.... It has to go trough your head, that fact that he spent 18 and a half hours on the court, and it turned out that he is most enduring player with that kind of constitution. I don´t want to make a prejudice, but if all turns out correct, I am thinking about a law suit against ITF. I will consult with my lawyers about that question. We are all trying to fight, and after this happens we feel cheated. With good result at Roland Garros this year, today i could have been in top 10.

- puerta was the fittest player after 18 1/2 hours on court because of what he supposedly took

Exactly what I've been thinking. Clearly against Davydenko, in that 5th set, he had a physical advantage even though he played a 5 setter against Canas the previous round.
But I don't think Ljubicic was affected. It was the 1st round and he lost in straight sets - there was nothing too physical about that.

By the mention of "cheating" and "flag" you are suggesting that Argentinians are expected cheaters. This is the way it looks from your post.

Just because he didn't tested positive in the first few matches he was clean. Do you think that if you take some drugs before match you will fly on the court.

So does Ljubicic want the whole draw to be replayed or something? I see his point but what can be done about it to validate suing Puerta. So should every player that lost in RG say that the reason they lost was due to the stress of having to potentially play Puerta in the next round but since he cheated they should now replay their matches? I don't see anyone else complaining who lost to Puerta.

This whole thing makes me want to go back to the ignorant pronunciation I had when I first starting following tennis: "loojabitch"

I don't see anyone else complaining who lost to Puerta.Because they have tact and realize it'd be pointless? :shrug:

Ivan might have a great career...but let's face it: His serve is better than his brains & diplomacy...He is just acting like a child, when trying 2 find someone 2 blame 4 his problems only...
Puerta is 10000000000000 times the sportsman and the fighter that Ivan is and will be... So...Vamos, Puerta! Shut up, Ivan!

An unfair comment in light of the current situation. People make mistakes with what they say and what they drink.

RG2004- he lost to Koubek who then tested positive for steroid use
RG2005- he lost to Puerta...

he feels cheated because there is nothing he can do to protect himself. he doesn't feel that the itf is doing a good job with testing players. here's the whole article in croatian. he's considering a law suit.

- Prema L'Equipeu, ispada da sam drugi put zaredom u Roland Garrosu izgubio od igrača koji je pao na doping testu. Lani je to bio Austrijanac Stefan Koubek, sada Mariano Puerta. Tekst je na trećoj strani uz listu svih Argentinaca koji su bili pozitivni. Ostao sam šokiran. Sada razmišljam o načinu na koji se zaštititi, jer ovo mi se već drugi put događa u Parizu. Kada na Olimpijskim igrama padneš na doping kontroli, izgubiš recimo broncu, koja pripadne četvrtom. No, na turnirima nemaš zaštitu. Što je s onima koji su izgubili od onih koji su bili pozitivni na kontroli? U Parizu ove godine mogao sam proći dva, tri kola, ždrijeb je bio sasvim solidan, ako isključim prvo kolo. Puerta... Mora ti proći kroz glavu to što je proveo 18 i pol sati na terenu, a ispao je najizdžljiviji s onakvom konstitucijom. Ne želim prejudicirati, ali ako se sve pokaže točnim, razmišljam o tužbi ITF-a. Konzultirat ću se s odvjetnicima po tom pitanju. Svi se pokušavamo boriti, a poslije ovakvih slučajeva osjećamo se prevarenima. S dobrim rezultatom u Roland Garrosu danas sam mogao biti među deset najboljih na svijetu.

lmao...

Yer, considering Ivan's performances in Slams, let alone his performances on clay, I'd say that the ATP should countersue him for being weak and flat footed.

:p

Of course, that is why Puerta is serving an 8-year-ban for doping and will live in ignominy for the rest of his life, whilst Ljubicic is a national hero and so respected by his fellow players that he is president of the players' council. :lol:
