First Positive WTA dope case?

From http://www.eurosport.co.uk/home/page...to797645.shtml

Pound warns of more positive tests

The chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Dick Pound, believes there will be more positive tests amongst players now that the International Tennis Federation (ITF), tennis' governing body, has taken over the anti-doping programme from the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).



DAVIS CUP: Honours even in Bratislava

"The ATP had an imperfect and botched process. Perhaps now that there is a rigorous testing process in place, the penny will drop among the players," Pound said on Friday.

The warning came as Karol Beck of the Slovak Republic, who is believed to have tested positive for a banned substance during the Davis Cup semi-final against Argentina, pulled out of his opening singles rubber against Croatia's Ivan Ljubicic and Saturday's doubles rubber in the Davis Cup final in Bratislava, with a knee injury.

Beck, the world number 57, denied the allegation that has been circulating for two weeks on Wednesday. But the 23-year-old was selected by the Slovak captain, Miloslav Mecir, despite not having played a match since the St Petersburg Open in October.

The Slovak Tennis Federation knows that were one of its players to have a positive doping test confirmed after the weekend, any wins by that player could be rescinded.

The 2005 season has already witnessed Argentina's Guillermo Canas banned for two years in August after taking a banned diuretic, and three others: Mariano Puerta and Mariano Hood, and an unnamed women's player - testing positive at the French Open - are yet to face a tribunal.



Jees - I never knew there was a women's player too! And I thought they were allegations that sort of were forgotton because Hood was identified. I wonder who it could be

it can for example boost your heart rate and brain activity, it can also block pain and improve reactions.

Love is a lie, which means I've been lied to...

But that's not the case.

Lourdes was inmature enough to try a line of coke in a party that was taking place in barcelona. The coke remains is detectable for a couple of weeks, but its effect just lasts some hours. She tested positive at a doping-test made in Acapulco, so she didn't take it to improve her game.

Yeah.

Does ITF take over doping for WTA also? Or does WTA still oversee that?

If it was positive at the French Open wouldn't we have heard about it by now?

The player that tested positive reached, at least, the round if 16, as far as I've heard. And there was no WTA argentinian player there.

I actually believe Mariano...Have you ever seen his head?. He's been progressively loosing his hair since a couple of years ago, and he's always trying to hide it.
...Which of course doesn't make it true that he's not guilty.
