  • Now Its Tennis' Turn

    http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,3 ... 74,00.html

    I read of some other tennis player who tested positive yesterday but I'd never heard of him.

    From the article:

    "The Canadian-born 30-year-old admitted in a statement that he had tested positive to "a low concentration of nandrolone metabolites"."

    Just like Ben is a Jamaican.

      He's now claiming in the British press that he was one of 47 out of the top 120 tennis players to test positive. If that's true that would be a pretty impressive percentage. Petre Korda was caught a few years ago as well.

        I was given steroids - McEnroe

        Three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe has admitted unwittingly taking steroids for six years. McEnroe was the world number one from 1981 to 1984 and won the US Open four times in an illustrious career. Reacting to Greg Rusedski's admission that he had tested positive for banned steroid nandrolone, McEnroe admitted he had been unaware he was being given a form of steroid for six years. He told the Sunday Telegraph: "For six years I was unaware I was being given a form of steroid of the legal kind they used to give horses until they decided it was too strong even for horses."

        Seem to be the only one on this thread. However, this should make the headlines later today. Guess that's an explanation for his foul temper though. What sort of "legal" steroids do they give to horses? Seem to remember Tatum making allegations a few years ago and him vehemently denying it. Wonder why he fessed up now? Must have been about to have been outed which suggests there's a bunch of behind-the-scenes crap going on in tennis too.

          I wonder if any sport is entirely free of it. Possibly even chess. Imagine the headline: "Karpov building his deltoids to be able to lift the king".Garry, Ben, just kidding, no implications whatsoever,

            They actually were early to the table of drug testing in their effort to be recognized by the IOC.

              More on this Quebecer:

              "The newspapers were quick to remind readers that Rusedski was born in Canada, something that's not always recalled if he's having a good run at Wimbledon."
