Grosjean, Safin, Thierry Champion, Muster, Arazi, Gicquel, and I believe Al Costa did occasionally.

Re: Which players smoke?

I read, on this forum, that Marat Safin actually played a match when he was hungover. I couldn't imagine playing a match after drinking a large quantity of alcohol. Pete Sampras drank a Coke, and puked on court. I could only imagine what alcohol could do to someeone.

Well, yeah, that's what I mean, he may smoke one cig from time to time but that doesn't make him a heavy, or even a regular smoker.

And it's not like there are pictures and video footage all over the Internet.

I think people are way too harsh on smokers. I do find it annoying to have smokers with me, mostly because you always have to go out in the cold when they want to have a smoke... But I find drinking far more annoying, and yet you don't get those strong condemnations about people who drink. Actually, it's rather the reverse: popular wisdom is that a person who doesn't drink is boring and has no life, and as a non-drinker, I am constantly subjected to mockery and told that I must have a very dull life, etc.
Don't see why players getting drunk at parties should be widely accepted while smoking would be such a shame.

Now I couldn't care less if he smokes or not. He's certainly extremely fit and if he can reach that physical condition, while smoking, then, good for him... It's a persistent rumour, I wouldn't be surprised if there was truth in it. I highly doubt he's a heavy smoker as some have implied, though.

Now it shouldn't surprise me, coming from you, knowing your sense of measure, but claiming that he's "promoting" smoking is utterly ridiculous. If he's really been smoking that much all these years, and there has never been any better evidence than what I've seen, and the photos you're talking of but cannot produce, then he's quite good at hiding it and thus certainly not "promoting" it.



OK you got me, this pic is obviously 100% genuine.

It's an unhealthy habit and not something that should be promoted on the world stage.

Re: Which players smoke?

I saw Gicquel smoking behind court 14 at the US Open. He looked like he enjoyed puffing more than playing tennis.

Re: Which players smoke?

There were reports that Djokovic used to smoke occassionally until Cetojevic came up. I cannot confirm or deny that since I do not know.
