BERLIN (Reuters) - There is no evidence that Tommy Haas was poisoned in Germany's Davis Cup semi-final defeat by Russia in Moscow in September, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) has concluded.

The ITF started an investigation after Alexander Waske, a doubles player on the German team, said he had been told by an unnamed figure in Moscow that Haas had been poisoned during Russia's 3-2 win.

"Following enquiries, the ITF has concluded that there is no medical information or other evidence whatsoever to support recent speculation concerning the medical condition of Tommy Haas during Germany's Davis Cup semi-final tie against Russia," the ITF said in a statement on Monday.

"There will be no further comment on this subject."

Haas said himself this month that blood tests had revealed no evidence of poisoning.

Haas was beaten in straight sets by Igor Andreev on the opening day of the semi-final and was unable to play in the reverse singles because of gastro-enteritis.

Anyone wonder why this (final) part of the saga hasn't become the first page story in British newspapers, sports sites or this message board? I mean as big as the allegations had been?

And Waske... what a clown. No wonder his iq is running in singles digits (according to some sources).

They found nothing, and next week they'll find nothing in Roddick's stomach.

:lol:

Gastro-enteritis... a bad hamburger seems way more likely than any Russian poison-interference. :angel:

I would have been shocked if they had found any evidence. Russian mafia is usually very god at this sort of thing.

Yeah, the Russian mafia is after Haas. His talent on clay scares them.
I hope the US mafia is mad at Roddick.
