Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

Richard Gasquet's positive test for the cocaine metabolite was much, much higher than Hingis's, and yet the ITF is just giving him a slap on the wrist. What the hell?

Both he and Martina said they did not knowingly ingest cocaine. Why believe Gasquet and cut him a break, but give Martina the longest punishment possible? PATHETIC!

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

Are you sure it is not regulated by the seperate tours?

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

I'm not sure. I will have to check. That being said I am thrilled for Gasquet. I don't think recreaional drugs should carry a strong punishment, at least not on the first offense.

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

I'm pretty sure the ban has nothing to do with the separate tours. The ITF is separate from the tours and it has banned Hingis from even setting foot on the grounds of Slams for two years.

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

Isn't that something? Even more so when Martina didn't even had enough substance in her body to feel any effect.

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

I was about to post the same thing!

I don't even like Martina but why Gasquet was not banned ????? (And I'm french)
It is really disgusting.
One poor little boy was a victim (while partying)

The other one was at a party (same conditions) and 2 years later, people just remember Martina as a child progidy turned bad.

Where is the difference between Martina and Richard?

Yes it is. I don't give a damn about Martina but this is fucking disgusting for her.

Martina should sue them.

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

Both are innocent and should not have been punished at all. Why do only players with beautiful games test positive for cocaine?

Richard Gasquet stood up and fought for his innocence. Martina Hingis turned tail and ran. That's the difference.

Re: Hingis's ban should be ended immediately!

the fact she decided to retire and annunced it just few minutes after the ITF judgement has something to do with that.

hingis didnt even try to defend herself while gasquet did. In fact gasquet didnt play any match in miami tournament, he went to that party before retire from the tournament. Hingis played Wimbledon and got that result after being tested.

That's NOT the same case!
