Post How harsh is the ATP - b****y hell !?!

19-year-old Guillermo Coria has been banned for seven months for failing a dope test, but check this out:

Said Mark Miles, ATP CEO, "Even though the evidence in this case showed that the supplements consumed by Mr. Coria were contaminated during manufacturing and did not list the banned substance on the label, he still must pay a significant price through suspension and forfeiture of points and prize money."

How unfair is that!<br /> <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Maybe we should start a petition on his behalf - it seems so unfair if the fault was with the manufacturers.

One thing is that the ban for seven months has its official start date as August 2001, because that is the last time he played a match on the tour, so he has already done four months of it. Having said that, that could have been when he was told he could not play by the ATP.

not Mini Moya as well, 1st Chela now Coria.

So he is gonna share the same fate and lose all his rank pts <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Chela bounced back , Coria is better, i hope he can bounce back too.

They set a precedent with Chela.

Wonder what would have happened if it was an US Player ?

You cannot be serious!? Raducan, Coria. Innocent victims. I hope Coria sues the bastards who produced the supplements. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

pretty unfair ... <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

i do wonder what will happen if it was a US player ... maybe hide the results of the tests (in track and field that has already happened many times)

also, didn't nathalie tauziat say that some players on the WTA Tour failed a dope test as well?
