Should Hingis pay back prize money ?

If it is true that Hingis took doping so she will be fined and pay back all prize money. How big money should it be ? I do not know the rule for this. Please info.

why she should pay back all her prize money, even if she took cocaine that doesnt mean she was doped and on all her matches all these years.

Cocaine doesn't enhance performance. If anything it is more likely to damage performance, so of course she shouldn't have to pay back any prize money.

Please Cocaine is probably a performance suppressant so she should be given more prize money.

Re: Should Hingis pay back prize money ?

ADA...Division of Alcohol and Drug AbuseCocaine's recent notoriety belies the fact that the drug has been used as a stimulant by people for thousands of years. Its properties as a stimulant have led people in the past to use it in a number of patent medicines and even in soft drinks.
But cocaine's highly addictive nature and addicts' willingness to pay a high price for the drug have propelled it into the public eye. The crime and violence associated with its transportation and sale, and the celebrity nature of some of its victims has kept cocaine in the news.

In its pure form, cocaine is a white crystalline powder extracted from the leaves of the South American coca plant. On the street, pure cocaine is diluted or "cut" with other substances to increase the quantity, and thereby increase the profits of its sellers.

Cocaine users most often inhale the powder sharply through the nose, where it is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. But it also can be heated into a liquid and its fumes inhaled through a pipe in a method called "freebasing". Freebasing is also a common method of using a form of cocaine called "crack". Crack resembles small pieces of rock and is often called "rock" on the street.

Freebasing is an especially dangerous means of abusing cocaine because of the high concentrations of cocaine it introduces into the bloodstream. These high doses can overtax the cardiovascular system. Reports of sudden death while freebasing are not uncommon.

Cocaine is highly addictive, especially in the crack form. In studies, animals addicted to cocaine preferred the drug to food, even when it meant they would starve. Many users report being "hooked" after only one use. The addiction is both psychological and physical.

Symptoms

Users usually feel an initial "rush" or sense of well-being, of having more energy, and being more alert. This effect quickly wears off, often leaving the user feeling more "down" or depressed than before. This down feeling leads the addict to use more cocaine, sometimes just to feel "normal." Over a period of time the, amount of cocaine needed and the frequency of use to achieve a "high" have to be increased. Feelings of depression can become chronic.

Cocaine addicts frequently turn to other drugs to relieve the down feeling when more cocaine is not available. When used together, these drugs and cocaine can prove even more deadly than when used alone.

Despite a popular myth, cocaine does not enhance performance whether it be on the job, in sports, at school, or with a sexual partner. On the contrary, long-term use can lead to loss of concentration, irritability, loss of memory, paranoia, loss of energy, anxiety, and a loss of interest in sex. The controlling effect cocaine has on an addict's life can lead to exclusion of all other facets of life. A habit can cost an addict thousands of dollars a week to maintain.

Breaking a cocaine habit is not easy. How long and how difficult a task it may be varies from person to person. Treatment can be costly and the craving for cocaine may persist for long periods of time.


There's always another side to an issue!

BTW, Hingis denies ever inhaling cocaine. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

If Martina Hingis is found guilty of a doping offense as a result of her positive test at Wimbledon, she will lose the ranking points she won there and she will have to forfeit whatever prize money she won there.

Welcome Justine Fan! You're absolutely correct. People should step back and let the situation play itself out. In time hopefully the truth comes out!

Oh no, so if she is found guilty she'll lose ranking points that dont exist an 1/1000000th or her money from endorsements and tennis career? Im sure Martina is more worried about being labeled a coke user then losing $40 grand.
