Bodhan Ulihrach was controlled positive with the nandrolone during the tournament of Moscow last October, announced to Thursday the Czech player of tennis. Ulihrach, the old Czech number one, is classified 9è with the ATP. It was declared shocked by the results of the analyses and said to be unaware of how the steroid could have been detected in its body. It indicated to be in waiting of the results of the test of the sample B, which should be known soon. "In December I received a letter saying to me that the control of sample A carried out on October 3 in Moscow was positive (...) with the nandrolone", Ulihrach said to the Sport daily newspaper. "I had been tested on 29 August with US Open and again on October 11 in Vienna. The two tests were negative ", it specified

sorry for the translation but the article was in french.

Well, I wondered why hadn't seen much of him playing on the Tour recently...

Accusations of drug abuse seems to be a curse that afflicts Czech players in particular - first Karel Novacek, then the infamous controversy over Petr Korda that forced him out of the game, and now Ulihrach.

Although Novak seems too calm a fellow for such activities, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Stepanek tested positive for a banned substance some time in the future - those big lips can only have come from some body-enhancing chemical or other...

Lipanek, that's a good one, lol.

I actually have a sneaking fondness for Stepanek, simply because he's such a character - I remember when he hit a backhand stretch volley past Kuerten at the net he went running round the court, arms held aloft like a bird.

At times he seems so casual, flippant and free-spirited during matches that he actually makes Kuerten look crabby and bad-tempered in comparison, although that has been easier to do in the last 18 months or so.
