Today is certainly a fine day to be an Argentine. Has this ever happened before, when a full 50% of the players in the Masters Cup have been from the same country? You have to give credit to the Argentine tennis program to get this position.

In 1989, there were five Americans in the YEC - McEnroe, Krickstein, Chang, Agassi and Gilbert. Also, Lendl may have been a US citizen by that point.

If you are going to accuse of being drug addicts all the tennis players of a country, then you would have at least be informed well:
Coria: he was absolved and was declared innocent (he is not a dopper for the ATP)
Puerta: yes, he was suspended to use a product medicine against the asthma. He was suspended by a formal question (for not to have registered the medicine in the lists, then by his condition of asthmatic he has allowed to use it)
Respect to his new case, until now we only have the news of a French newspaper (maybe you have heard "innocent until proven guilty")
Nalbandian and Gaudio: hmmmm .........yes, they couldn't have so good backhand without the use of some prohibited substance .... but they must be of different laboratories (Gaudio uses the substance for the 1 hand BH , and David the one for a 2 hands)

Argentina have no tennis program, they do all by their own sacrifice, so it's very impressive to have 4/5 players at the top 15 (don't forget cañas, and maybe you can take out Puerta :p).

And of 'course, you can't compare them to those 5 players who get the YEC, but don't forget that USA have lots of clubs/leagues, and like 20 ATP tournaments, 60 challengers and 120 futures, while argentina have 1 International Series, 1 Challenger and 7/8 futures :S with an association that don't support players.

and to remind everyone, coria entered without any favors...and so did coria and gaudio klast year..without favors...and so did coria and nalby two years ago...without favors

so all the nes who r sad and angry about that...keep getting sad angry and jealous :)

argentina is a power in tennis...in soccer (maradona and 1'000 others around the world)...basketballl (manu ginobili..etc etc)..tennis..no country has so many leading stars in the leading sports in the world..

Well said :worship: I cannot understand why this hatred towards Argentina and their tennis players from some of the posters on this board. All I know is Argentina produces some of the most talented human beings in the world, and it's not only in Sports. In literature, in cinema, in the arts, you just name a human endeavour and for sure you will find someone Argentina there. If Argentina was as rich as some countries there would be more.

I can't believe some people on here are actually gullible enough to be fooled by Coria's claims that he didn't take drugs. Whenever an athlete takes drugs, of course it's part-and-parcel for them to claim that they didn't do it. Sure, if you're going by that logic, then Tyger Hamilton, Barry Bonds and Rafael Palmeiro are all innocent...:rolleyes:

As for Puerta, how can anyone believe this guy isn't guilty? He undertakes a comeback and from nowhere somehow manages to reach the final of the French Open. That the guy has already served a doping suspension makes it difficult to give him the benefit of the doubt...he is either a) a doper; or, b) the stupidest person in the world by 'accidentally' taking contaminated substances twice...:lol:

He was found innocent.
The "drug" is not forbidden anymore because there's no strong proof that it gives you some kind of advantage.
When he was suspended he was far away from top 20.

Everybody have the right to not like the Argentine tennis players, but if you want to accuse somebody and you want to be objective:
- first, you would have to know the facts (then I recommend you to go and read a little more) Eg: Coria was declared innocent, reason why he must not have even antecedents
- second, you must prove it

... As for Puerta, how can anyone believe this guy isn't guilty? He undertakes a comeback and from nowhere somehow manages to reach the final of the French Open.sure, as you didn't know Puerta well, and you didn't know that he is one of the best players of the world in clay, then you must suspect.... very clever :cool:
what tests do you have? An article from L'Equipe? you knew that also that newspaper said that Puerta had been put under other controls before the final, and that they gave negative result?
:scratch: I ask myself.... how could he arrive to the final?
... or, b) the stupidest person in the world by 'accidentally' taking contaminated substances twice...:lol: :smash: I insist, you must go and read a little more... Puerta was never suspended by taking contaminated substances; he was suspended because he didn't declare that he had consumed a product for the asthma.

It seems like some Argentine members are registering new users to seem like there's more of them to argue with me. I'm not fooled by this, there has to be in fact one or two ;)

people like you...like to talk nonsense without knowing the facts

but dont be sad, u arent alone..most ppl in the world r like that..talk without knowing any fact

1. coria was suspended for only a few months, because he was declared innocent. had to serve few months out because the test was positive, but he was found innocent cause he didnt take anything.

2. puerta in his only case up to now (leaving outside the silly frenchy accusations), was also given a ban because a took something that later was ok to take because he is asthmatic, but he didnt tell it first time, so he wa spunished on that..but later he was allowed to take that same medicine.

3. for the idiot that spoke about every argentine thread is about dopers or so. know how many americans got banned other than alex bogomolov? a lot. know how many americans were positive in athletics, swimming, track and field, cyclisme, boxing...etc? LOTS !!! know how many italian players test positive in a season in soccer serie a? LOTS !!! just because they r not famous..u dont hear about them..but several are caught from lower ranked teams...know how many italians were caught on drugs in the tour de france? LOTS !!! and how many french? LOTS !!! and how many czechs and swedish etc etc etc on athletics...track and field..swimming etc? LOTS !!!

but people who r jealous so many argentines on top..and cant get the idea that a 3rd world country is so successful..they r jealous and try to say argentina=drugs.

just because of maradona that was so popular (by the way, he was number 1 despite the drugs, not because of them..cocaine..as u know..doesnt help u succedd in sports..just means he was even greater, cause despite the drugs he was number 1 !!!) and because of 4-5 tennis players (of which 2 were completely innocent) - u try to stick argentina to drugs

but maradona, canigga and 4-5 tennis = 6-7 in total in sports

how many americans, italians, french, czechs, or any other nations sportsmen r caught a year? LOTS !!!! much more than 6-7...

so stop taling nonsense

argentina is a sports world power with leading figures in soccer (in the best leagues in the world..spain..italy etc), basketball (manu ginobili, gold medal in the oplympics...3 wins over the dream team...players in the best leagues in the world) and of course tennis

a leading country in 3 of the most popular sports in the world (and not golf, racing, cricket and all the other bullshit)

we r a power

Hi! new in here..

I've been reading carefully this thread and realised that the fact here isn't drugs in sports, is just drugs.

I don 't believe many of you pepole have ever visited argentina, and those who have came here would have noticed the quality of people here

You must be wandering what I'm talking about..., well I don't know myself =P. But, as far as I've seen in many places, Ex: USA, France, Italy, Spain, Chile your people are the dopers one...
One just single train journey in Lyon was enough for me to get consciousness of the amount of drugs your civilization (so pure, correct and educated) consumpts.

Chile, #1 ranked in drug consumption per capita in Latin America.

Spain, Barcelona is a complete mess. At least thanks for buying the
marihuana and cocaine we plant :D

I don't wanna to get to talk about conspiracys.., but c'mon... what makes you believe that none of top tens players take drugs..., Have you ever attended to any party attended by an ATP player?
what do you think? they would drink perrier??

so well... if it's drugs the problem, I dont believe that argentines are the only one who ever taken advantage of drugs, and whatsoever puerta has always play well tennis (read bio ;)), chela appears to took no advantage from any drug (maybe to win amersfoot... i dont find that very useful), and I wont talk about coria coz Im not gonna stand for him.

NyGeL
11-15-2005, 05:06 PM
Wrongly accused... I guess some people are so blinded by patriotism they cannot form an objective opinion. Anyone can see that Puerta's case does not look very strong...but if he is found innocent I will be sure to apologize. However, I will not do the same for those Argentines who have been shown to have doped in the past...:wavey:

I can't belive how easy you belive in a newspaper or in ATP T_T

But, IMHO Argentina does it pretty good in tennis, being a latin american country with a population of 37 millions (and aproximately half of it poor). We`re talking about a country without development programm....

Fellas, I don't want to say that Argentina is crap in sports or that they don't have talent in lots of sports, more the opposite. They are doing very well in many things especially considering their athletes are usually not supported by loads of money and they don't have a potential of 300 million people to select from like other countries. It is more the expression that disturbs me saying: "sports world power". That's just not accurate IMO :shrug: Maybe such a powerful term should be reserved for China after the Olympics 2008 while looking at the final medal tally :lol:

Coria will continue to do well on clay and shit on everything else and lose all matches at the Masters Cup....if he even qualifies.

Gaudio - will continue to win minor clay tournies and finish top 20.

Puerta - Won't do anything of note off clay.

Canas...will likely still be banned.

of course. If you consider that around 95% of tennis clubs in argentina have only clay surfaces, and maybe the BIG clubs have 2 or 3 Hard courts, its pretty obviously that our players will probably be 100% claycourters, 'couse until junior professional level, they will "never" meet a different surface.

No offense taken; it's all good. Simply a matter of interpretation. :D

They may not have the #1 or #2 player; but as a country the quantity matters. It's not that they just have a bunch of players in the ATP. But they have 4 out of the top 11. It shows that the players there have the talent to succeed apparently in spite of a poor or non-existent version of a junior development program. Look at how many USA (and that's my country) or Spanish players are in the program and they could not manage as many YEC players as Argentina. I never said "Argentina has the Best Player in the World". Therefore until another country gets that number of players to the top of the ranks,I am sticking to my statement that as a country (not an individual),

"Argentina rules the tennis world!"

I'm laughing inside while I write my posts, I can't take this seriously. I would have already jumped from my balcony. :p

This thread has turned to something like British and Brazilians against argentines, and some chileans too. This ain't objective discussion.

You take things too seriously, dude. You even tried to bad rep me for a comment I made here, and if you think twice you'll see that it was nothing but a good-natured joke. Patriotism has its limits and you should know that.

Ugh! Relax pal.
I just answered when people talked without a background. I was having fun.
Sorry if I tried to bad report you, I dont even know how problematic that is. But there's is a general lack of respect to some great players that gives shape to our favorite sport.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not blaming you. You've behaved.

PS: If you check out my posts, I have never said Argentina is a world sport power, come on.. that's not realistic.
PS: I write quick posts, can't put any funny faces to male my posts look less serious =P

its a feat pretty good and pretty underrated but hopefully none of them will make the semis :devil:

They are here in quantity, but will we see an Argentinian finalist or winner? Is there a likely Argentinian world number 1? They seem to be very good at entering the top ten, but not making the final step to number 1. Very few grand slams have been won by Argentinians despite the large number of players.

We will see if they can reach the final. :angel:

:banana: Well done David :worship:

A Russian Marat Safin won the Australian Open, a Spaniard Rafael Nadal won the French Open, A Swiss player won Wimbledon and the US Open, the Year end masters was won by an Argentinian. The Davis Cup will be won by either Croatia or Slovakia.

Tennis has really become a global sport dominated by no nation and all the better for it.
