I'd like to add my 2 cents on this matter as well, in a serious manner.
Apart from it being true or not - and as I have quite a high trust in dope controll, I fear it is - Martina is not the only high-level player who could have succumbed to the attraction of drugs. It's only human.
I understand it's difficult to comprehend for many, but believe me, people under high strain - and Martina sure felt the high expectations set on her - are often inclined to take certain drugs, if only to combat their own deeply felt inadequacy to deal with those high expectations. Don't judge this, if you've never felt those high expectations set on yourself as well!
I can't blame her at all, in fact.
Just look at her - a child prodigy (being awfully pushed by her mother BTW, who even named her after Navratilova!), achieving AMAZING results at a very young age, then becoming plaqued by injuries, loss of concentration, etc. - and finally, deciding to make a come-back at a relatively old age (yeah, 26 is 'old' in women's tennis!). She did very well for a while, even coming back to a #6 ranking in the WTF, and then suddenly, AGAIN a nasty injury. And another one...
And on top of it, her engagement with Stepanek ended. I know, a lot of people made jokes about it, but why not believe - if only for a second - that she indeed LOVED the guy? It's not all
about looks in the Real World, you know - I happen to think she was very true in her feelings and just received another major BLOW when her engagement ended.
And then, Wimbly - getting beating by a player much lower than her...
I can well understand that on a bad night, she suddenly felt this feeling "What The FUCK!"
at disgust about all that happened to her, just decided to party herself out of her mind, and took a bit of coke. It's not THAT unusual to happen (Wilander was caught as well, remember?).
I have this feeling that she might have just allowed 'others', 'powers-that-be' (i.c. the doping controll committee) to pull the trigger
in the end, as she perhaps not felt capable of doing it herself. The fact that this comes after having been 'caught' after Wimbly supports my view in this case. The fact that she seems to have chosen not to battle against the accusations even more.
Of course, all I say here is only a theory - but in any way, I rather feel PITY for her more than anything else, and hope she'll get out of this as good as possible, given the circumstances. All the best to her in the rest of her life - and I'll remember her as a wonderful, very talented player.
Whatever happens, she will be missed, and I will always have fond memories of her!
Here's to you, Swiss Miss!
