Its on the news here in Argentina. Caņas announced today that the ATP informed him he tested positive for a doping test taken during the Acapulco tournament in February. He's stepping out of DC and is investigating how/where he could have taken the banned substance since he has no idea where he could have gotten from. He is both "innocent and shocked" and "living a nightmare".

He adds that he, with the help of his team, have always subsisted on a completely natural diet, so he is meticulously reconstructing his eating habits over the last 6 months. "I am shocked but innocent."

Horrible, horrible news. :sad: :sad: :sad:

DC for Argentina is over. And Caņas will have the hardest time living this down...

I hope there is a good explanation for this...

I know they are all different cases... asthma, contaminated suplements... but I'm tired of this...

Coria, Chela, Puerta and now Willy :sad:

If he is innocent, then I feel sorry for him :sad: He's a great fighter.

If he is not innocent, then I hope he will be getting a lengthy suspension.

One more Argentinean? "They're drugged. THey are all drugged!"???? OMG.

Could it be that they have poor quality of food in Argentina? Maybe some vegetables and fruits are sprinkled with something? :unsure:

I hope if he's as innocent as he says he is, that he gets off. Otherwise, a ban would suffice.

Wow I'm shocked! Willy is one of my favourite players.
A sad day for tennis in general. :sad:
We all should wait until Willy receives his tribunal hearing.
Remember Rusedski last year.

Don't be fooled - wouldn't you noticed changes in your body, shape if you had taken something (knowing or not knowing)! What kind of illegal stuff was found in his body? What does it do to your body?

You have to take more than a little to notice any physical changes.... but not to test positive.

In any case, if he tests positive then he's not "innocent." He may have done it without knowing, but that doesn't make him "innocent."

To be honest, no matter how medicine in Argentina is or whatever, these players should know better. They make enough money that they can afford to be more cautious and take drugs and supplements that they are sure are not tainted.

I don't know very well the Chela and Puerta's cases. But what the ATP did to Coria was outrageous. I just hope Caņas is innocent.

I remember a few years ago people were speculating about his incredible fitness and condition. I suppose if he did take banned substances it would explain it but it may be all a mistake. We have to wait for the hearing before we say any more.

gosh now I hope that Nadal is not unto something because of his bulky frame. To be precise alot of athletes take drugs but they don't get caught because they take masking agents that are not detected when they have to be tested for steroid taking.

I thought so too when I read the first 2 messages of the second page so I checked the thread title on the top of the page again before posting.

No. If you take cocaine, do you see changes in your body? The same goes for many result-enhancing drugs or doping. Your abilities might improve, but your body doesn't have to change much (on the outside).

I hope he is innocent! I don't think from what I have heard of his personality that Caņas would be guilty
