first of all i agree with you, he earned his way there but im thinking that without his serve he would have no chance against a player like canas, so imo canas has a good chance to get to top 20...

its not like all his "50" "tournys" count, but yes, it is a better chance to gather points that way, but then again some players dont have the stamina to play that much tennis per year, so give some credit for the russian boldie too..

No. I don't say it wasn't Canas's fault. The findings of the case said it.

Do you get it? That there is actually a reason other than "Oooh, he's a player I like so he must not be guilty", or is that the only thing you can possibly think of to explain any debate or discussion over any tennis topic whatsoever?

Court of Arbitration for Sport reduces suspension of Guillermo Canas to 15 months

Lausanne, 23 May 2006 – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has partially upheld the appeal filed by the Argentinean tennis player, Guillermo Cañas, against the decision of the Anti-doping Tribunal of the ATP Tour of 7 August 2005.

The Tribunal of the ATP Tour found that Guillermo Cañas tested positive for the prohibited substance hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) at the ATP tournament “Abierto Mexicano de Tenis” in Acapulco, Mexico on 21 February 2005. As a consequence, the Tribunal of the ATP Tour disqualified the Player from the Acapulco tournament and suspended him for a period of two years, effective from 11 June 2005. Furthermore, the Tribunal ordered the disqualification of the Player from the competitions he took part in between 21 February 2005 and 11 June 2005, with the exception of Roland Garros, a tournament during which he tested negative.

The Player filed an appeal with the CAS on 29 August 2005 to request the annulment of the ATP Tour decision. This matter was submitted to a panel composed of Ms Maidie Oliveau (USA), President, Mr Christopher Campbell (USA) and Mr Yves Fortier (Canada). The parties, their representatives and witnesses were heard by the Panel at a hearing in New York on 19 and 20 January 2006.

On the basis of the evidence submitted by the parties, the Panel of arbitrators found that the Player ingested a medication called “Rofucal”, delivered to him by the tournament staff in Acapulco although the tournament doctor prescribed a different medication for him. G.Cañas took the medication he received without reviewing the content of the box, even though he knew that the medication had been through several hands before being delivered to him. The Panel noted also that the doping control form completed by the Player did not list the medication prescribed by the tournament doctor.

The Panel considered that the Player was entitled to rely on the expertise of independent medical staff provided by the organisers of the Acapulco tournament. The arbitrators also emphasised the fact that a mistake in the delivery of the medication was made not by the Player, but rather by the tournament staff. However, the Panel considered that the Player had a duty of utmost caution after visiting the tournament doctor to ascertain whether the medication received was indeed the medication prescribed by the doctor.

In conclusion, the Panel was of the opinion that the negligence committed by the Player was not significant and decided that his period of ineligibility should be reduced by nine months, from two years to fifteen months. The suspension of G. Cañas which started on 11 June 2005 will come to end on 10 September 2006. In addition, the Panel decided that other than with respect to the Acapulco tournament, none of the results achieved by G.Canãs before 11 June 2005 should be disqualified.

And for the topic of this thread. I see the top 10 really difficult: a lof of players showed up while he was out and others got stronger. There are plenty competition for the top 10 already, and while Cañas is fit as hell and playing great, he's not as young as the others. He's almost 30. He is in the last part his career. There aren't too many players that can do what Agassi did. I think he will be back at the top 25, even Top 20. But I doubt the top 10. Maybe Top 15 but not for long.
Hope I'm wrong. Nalbo needs some company there ;)

Look, Canas has on of the ugliest strokes for a top player, there isn't one stroke of his that is pleasing to the eyes. The thing that makes him so successful is that he is like a brick wall. He break down his oponents with sheer consistency and court coverage. He is Basically similar to a Nadal but, without all the topspin..

answering the question, I woud not be that surprised if he did finish in the top 10. His confidence right now is just huge..

In 1999 he finished the year at #70.
In 2000 he injured his left wrist, and went down to #231 (4 months outside the court).
In 2001 his year end ranking was #15. He was awarded as the Comeback Player of the Year.
In 2002 he won Toronto AMS, and ended the year also as #15. And got injured at the end of the year.
In 2003 because of a wrist tedonitis and a stress fracture on his hand, he only played 6 tournaments and at the year end ranking he was #272.
He finished 2004 at #12.
In 2005, he was top ten for three months, but got the suspension and ended the year outside the top 100.
He started playing again in September 2006, he was ranked #514.
Now, he is back in the top 100.

This is his third comeback.

He defeated all career Top 10 players for title :eek:

yes, 4 of them no.1s. They were all playing excellent tennis at this time.

But what IL said is the truth, He is a embarising for the sport.

OT: That guy is too old to come back in the top 10, he won't even reach top 50

Another one who is to lazy to read or inform himself...but should be expected of someone who can't even spell "embarrassing". The embarrassment was the tribunal and Canas being banned in the first place.

Why?

because i don't like sportmen who use drugs(you can doping compare with drugs because you will get the feeling that you can do everything) to play bether. I don't have nothing personally to him;)

He should take a look to the Argentin footballteam and see that with hard work you can be very good!



Wanna bet?


No

I agree with the people that says he probably reach top 20...

That would be good enough....more than that it just great!

Please ignore trolls....try to make them understand is a waste of your time
Let´s just focus on enjoy cañas while he is on court...like I think most of us do...

Depends if he's taking drugs again :p (ONLY JOKING PEOPLE!)

Seriously no I don't think so but I agree with those who say he can make Top 20.

So my question still stands, why is Canas an embarrassment?

He should take a look to the Argentin footballteam and see that with hard work you can be very good!

When I look at our national team, I see many problems. But this isn't the thread for that.

No

Didn't think so. Don't worry, I wasn't going to take your money. I was thinking something like if Canas makes the top 50, you change your avatar to a Canas pic for a year and have "Canas is my hero" in your sig?

to be a top ten player is not hard these days..
back in the 80s and 90s it was hard to break into the top ten.. all top players were great ones.. but nowadays anyone could break into the top ten
so why cant canas?

In 1999 he finished the year at #70.

In 2000 he injured his left wrist (4 months outside tennis courts), and went down to #231.

In 2001 his year end ranking was #15. He was awarded as the Comeback Player of the Year.

In 2002 he won Toronto AMS, and ended the year also as #15. And got injured at the end of the year.

In 2003 because of a wrist tedonitis and a stress fracture on his hand, he only played 6 tournaments and at the year end ranking he was #272.

In 2004 he came back strong, and his year end ranking was #12.

In 2005, he was top ten for three months, but got the suspension and ended the year outside the top 100. He started playing again in September 2006, and had no ranking.

By the end of 2007, he is #15.


Congrats Cañas for your third comeback!!!

The Top Ten is the goal for 2008...

the question is... will be willy canas back in top 10? because he is playing very well and he was a top 10 player but after 15 months without tennis will he back at the elite of tennis?

are you the one who made the thread "david pics ferrer"? your grammar needs a lot of work! :p

Of course it is possible now, a good draw at the AO and he will be there.

No, that was a different person.
About the thread's question, I think he still has quite a good chance of entering the top 10.

I think he will do this during the start of the year but drop out after failing to defend Miami points.

martine2
11-21-2007, 11:58 AM
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for him to succeed of course.
Staying there will be difficult with the points he has to defend but he's surprised people before and I hope he'll do so again :)

I can definately see him entering the top 10 next year.

Not likely at his age unless he starts playing around with needles again.

Yes, he will need to get a new supply of drugs as the old ones seemed to be wearing off towards the end of last season.

This was an important year for Canas and IMO he did well. He's number 15 after starting out with no ranking in 2006. He's spent a year and some weeks making his bones and showing that he can compete at the top levels of the sport. He is "old" for a tennis player but I think he can make the top ten next year. Not sure if he makes it into the top eight and can hold it but he can do top ten for sure.

23 players will finish in top 10 next year.

The drug ish has got to stop, seriously. If the ATP dismissed it and was able to let it go so should you.

I would love him to make top 10, and i think he can if he just becomes a lil stronger mentally; but i'll be satisfied if he stays at the top 20 too.

Many courts slowing down, yes, I see him entering considering unreliable 'talent' in the game such as Gasquet.

As long as he keeps playing Federer then yes, he will.

Del_Toro

IMO he had his best and last chance this year. So the answer is NO, I don't think Cañas could be a top 10 again.
He will be lucky if he remains as Top 20 with so many points to defend in the 1st half of 2008.

Mateya
11-22-2007, 02:14 PM
No.
Since he got that hot chick its all over for him. :tape:

There's no need for me to discuss these topics all over again :rolleyes:

Anyhow...on the real topic discussed here...I think Cañas won't be able to reach top 10 this year, unless he does tremendously well in RG, Wimbly and/or USopen....so who knows.....:shrug:

My prediction is Top 20 too ;)

I Agree
