Re: Wayne Odesnik caught doping again, out 15 years (aka forever)

How comes Lopez appears to have shed upper body weight with no apparent loss of power? He's another good old boy from Spain, thirty three now yet the 12th best player on the planet, his highest ever...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Wada could test using hair

The gist as far as the peds go is that del Moral sorted out her problems of fatigue with a suitable 'recovery programme'.
This magic formula was so good that Safina jokes that 'even my coach wants to...

Re: Marcelo Rios to contest Australian Open 1998 final outcome?

There is not even one chance in a million that Korda will lose his A.O. title. The speculation is absurd.

Re: Marcelo Rios to contest Australian Open 1998 final outcome?

There is less than zero chance Korda will end up stripped of his Australian Open title.

In no way could a legal inference be drawn that Korda doped at the A.O. because he happened to test positive...

Me too. I don't see Fognini losing to Isner in Glasgow either.

Re: Boris Becker : "CYGS is impossible"

Boris said it was impossible to conceive a baby in a broom cupboard and he proved wrong on that one as well.

Re: WWW Davis Cup: USA vs Great Britain

Murray playing three rubbers across three days represents a high risk approach which could easily backfire. Fognini made mincemeat of him in Naples on the final day and Murray aint rubbish on...

You would think so, but clearly the governing body thinks otherwise.

You can’t be a great player without a significant amount of skill, and that in itself helps tennis be a little more confident there isn’t widespread abuse… It may be that tennis is not conducive to...

Re: Events run by national associations

Apart from silly pre-Wimbledon theatrics like Boodles and Hurlingham, Wimblerdon itself or that super, end of year exhibition, the WTF, all UK tournaments are organised by the LTA, including Queens.

Re: Troicki suspended for 18 months for refusing a blood test.

From what we are seeing with Cilic, Troicki, Djokovic & co. and their lame protest petition, "ATP University" must consist of handing out the ATP manual of convenient doping excuses.

Re: Troicki suspended for 18 months for refusing a blood test.

ATP players, once they reach 200 in the rankings are required to attend "ATP University" either in Miami or London. It's basically a week's course for up and coming professionals. Match fixing and...

Re: Troicki suspended for 18 months for refusing a blood test.

On the other hand he's made himself, and tennis, look stupid. Djokovic seems to think that retrospective exemption from a test is a simple matter of writing a letter or getting your mate to speak up...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Quinzi's comment)

Not so; the firt test for EPO was at the summer Olympics in 2000. EPO itself was banned from the early 1990s.

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Quinzi's comment)

Lance slipped up only once - a minor infringement for cortisone which he dealt with by way of a backdated doctor's certificate. Not bad when you consider he sailed through 299 other tests, when he...

Re: Doping in Tennis Thread (No accusations without proof. Quinzi's comment)

These players will all say what their publicists tell them to. You'll find even more comments from them (historically) which are critical of anti-doping. Nadal used to regard it as an infringement of...

Re: Cilic suspended 9 months

An unannounced ban is to all intent and purpose a secret ban as the player is allowed to fool the public regarding his absence.
