Question So Is Sesil Playing in Australia

I think I missed the final result of her scandal while I was traveling so can somebody please update me. Is this former baby's mama playing in Sydney and the Australian Open or is she going to be banned or is she going to pull out?

No reason for her not to play. The WTA and ITF has still not said a single word about it.

Well, even if the WTA did "say something", the hearing regarding suspension probably wouldn't even take place for a few months, and she'd be able to play anyway between then.

They will be pissed, I am sure. They should take their complaints to the ITF for taking so long to resolve these issues. I know Ivan Ljubicic was really angry about playing Puerta and was threatening legal action (I am not sure who he was going to sue). Innocent until proven guilty is fine, but something needs to be changed about having 6-9 months of negotiations etc. Geez, they do the tests, get the athletes explanation, make a decision.

as long as she hasn't proven guilty, Sesil has right to play wherever she wants.

Heheh, I am noticing that people who don't like her are the most interested to have news.

Don't worry, she'll play until she's banned IF she's banned.

When Sesil came on the scene I didnt really care much for her because I thought she is young and needs to keep her mouth shut and let her game do her talking. Then she kinda quietened down a bit and I saw some hope for me liking her. Then she goes and beat my Venus...and I wanted to whip her over the head.......lol, even though I think Venus deserved it for not pressing more for the win. Didnt really love her after that, but thought she has some game and with work could become really good....just as long as she didnt beat Venus again. Was willing to open up and give her a chance. Then I heard these drug and baby rumours and wanted to whip her over the head again (if they are true...), not only for being foolish enough to take them or not use protection if she feels she has to rush and have sex before that age of 16,...but moreso because because she has left me feeling like I shouldnt have started to give her a chance to begin with....selfish reason, but thats how I felt. Then last weekend I saw her story on the Tennis Channel and I am back to almost liking her again. The piece on her just showed what a little kid she is and she seemed so sweet but with that really competitive side to her. One minute I am watching it I am thinking "there is no way she was pregnant, she is such a baby", then I start thinking "but then she acknowledges that she just loves a dare/bet. I wonder if she and that bosom buddy of hers made a bet relating to either sex or doing whatever it takes to win, and Sesil being the sucker for a bet, went a little too far"
Whatever the circumstances behind this drug thing I hope this doesnt break her. I am not too optimistic right now because I think whenever there are rumours like this, something untoward really went on ....even if not the exact thing the athlete is accused of.....(I also think Lance did some cheating too). I wouldnt like her to play until this thing is cleared up because I dont think its fair to the other players. But this is where I think the authorities are at fault. They do so many tests a year but take so long to sort them out. Then now with the mandatory play in Slams etc, how can they not let the accused play if you get a zero (0) for not playing in the Slams for which you qualify, and it goes towards your ranking. We need to hear something about this matter and soon.

I hope everything with Sesil will be OK and she will play this year and will show her best.
Good luck Sesil!
