Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

Yanina Wickmayer has been given a one year suspension for failing to report her whereabouts to anti-doping officials three times during 2009. What's your opinion about this?

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

She should at the most have been given a warning, and since there obviously are holes in the system probably not even that. A ban is ridiculous, but I guess I've already said enough about how I feel about the issue. Let me just say that if Yanina had been born anywhere else in the world than on this little landscape we call Flanders she wouldn't be in this mess.

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

I'm furious. It's so unfair for her.

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

Well I'm not a fan of her but that's definitely too hard. I mean Gasquet got 2 months Suddenly I miss the "Whoopieee". She really reached a lot in 2009 and she will have to start from 0 in 2011.

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

She should only have been giving a warning, one year is much much too much.

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

They should ban her until Paris or something. 1 year seems slightly too long.

Rest in Peace Bally!

ANY sort of a ban is wrong. People who vote for "A ban should have been given but 1 year is way out of proportion" honestly think that they are reasonable, I'm sure. But they are not. To the average person it doesn't matter whether she's suspended for two weeks or five years. In their minds she will always be that girl who was suspended for a doping offence related issue. Any sort of suspension means that her reputation is in shatters for the rest of her career.

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

I couldn't care less

I never liked this girl because of her on court behaviour, grunt and uninspired game
And her ban allowed Kimiko to play the SF in Bali

Re: Your opinion of the Wickmayer ban

maybe a year is harsh, but having another mindless grunting ballbasher not on tour isnt exactly a bad thing.

I love ballbashers! By the exception of Whoopieemayer. But a year is too much. Imagine Anna would be banned for a year
