This is so disappointing? Kristina always has like a good tournament all of a sudden every few months & starts playing crap for the next few... she needs to up her consistency or she will be stuck in the top 400/300 for years to come.

This is exceptional stuff! Great fight in the semifinal, definitely appears she had to make a comeback in the second set. :worship:

From those pictures, it does seem she could afford to take her fitness to a higher level. She needs some more muscle tone from what it looks like. But as long as she's winning I shall not complain! :angel:

Win the title! :yeah:

oh and she also made the doubles final but lost, but still good effort. :)

Nice to see Kristina back in action. She needs to stay healthy and play consistently if she ever wants to move onto the WTA level. Lately she plays 2 months at a time, gets injured, dissapears for 6 months, and then storms back to win a big ITF with the cycle repeating. :o :lol:

oh no :( Kristina has been banned for 14 months due to doping... she will only be back in 2011

How unfair :o

LONDON (AP)—Ukrainian teen Kristina Antoniychuk has been suspended from tennis for 14 months for doping.

The International Tennis Federation said on Wednesday the 19-year-old Antoniychuk tested positive for the banned diuretic furosemide at the Mexican Open on Feb. 22. She said the drug got into her system through a prescription.

The ITF accepted her explanation, but says that she lacked a therapeutic exemption and that players are responsible to ensure “no prohibited substance enters his-her body.”

Antoniychuk’s ban will end on April 21, 2011. Her results since the date of the positive test will be disqualified.

They accept that she wasn't trying to cheat, that it was from a prescription medicine, yet they still insist on a 14 month ban? Ridiculous. Surely they should reduce this to much less. The players need a proper support system that will actually stand up for them on issues like this. Players like Kristina spend many years training, and to have over a year wasted by a stupid thing like this, :fiery:. I hate the bureaucracy of the drug testing system, they aren't even catching drug cheats anymore, they're catching people in loopholes, like lawyers. If they want to catch actual cheats they should focus more in private investigating to find people distributing/creating/buying and less on catching poor people like Kristina out on technicalities.

Well, this is not the first unfair case of drug penalties, at least in terms of sports. Andreea Raducan (2000 Olympics Gymnastics AA champ, & will always be in my heart) was stripped of her gold medal after testing positive for a substance in a cold pill that isn't even in the banned list anymore (should have never been there in the first place, IMO).

Yes, Raducan got an unfair penalty for cold medicine pseudoephedrine- Nurofen, Sudafed etc. It was taken off the banned list in 2004, but as of Jan 10 this year, it is actually on the banned list again :weirdo:. They are catching people on technicalities, just because they lack the know-how to actually find the people who are really trying to cheat. As I said, I think the answer is turning to private investigating to find circles which are actually promoting, creating or distributing performance enhancing drugs. An athlete who has no desire to cheat and who takes reasonable precautions should be safe from the worry of being banned. Right now, it's actually extremely difficult to make sure you are not going to be banned, because taking some normal medicine that a doctor prescribes to you could get you in trouble. If you've already made it big, your support team will probably keep a watch on you and make sure you are okay, but small fish keep getting caught by the technicalities. So you basically have to take nothing. One of my coaches was a tennis player ranked maybe 200, he was too afraid to take anything when he was sick. It's ridiculous. One day someone in some sport will refuse to take something prescribed to them by a doctor, or in a hospital, for fear of testing positive, and will die as a result. Only then will the situation change.

Hopefully she will have a good comeback in 2011.

I'm still annoyed by her stupid ban. They accepted that she wasn't trying to cheat but still slapped her with the ban. They aren't even trying to catch cheats anymore, they're just bureaucrats who don't understand the spirit of the laws. I hope she gets used to playing matches again soon.

Dunno. But looks like tennis is not in her plans ftm. I believe she got married. Don't know much actually. :sad:

What intrigates me is that her ban wasn't that long (compared to Sesil's one for instance) and she didn't even give a try to come back and see. Maybe she didn't like it enough to start everything all over again.

Hopefully she will have a good comeback in 2011.

One of my friends went to the YOG for European Handball and had a friend who had a puffer for asthma. She accidentally took too much and has been banned from handball for 2 years. This is not the worst case by far, but it is disappointing. But still, the rules are the rules :shrug:

I was just thinking of her when I learnt Barbora ZS got tested positive on something. As for Barbora we still dunno what's it's all about already, Kristina's story makes me sad. Too bad really it stopped her carreer as she was on her way to break Top 100. I really liked this player. It doesn't seem like she's planning a comeback at all though, that's just too sad. :sad:

When you have invested your whole life in a tennis career and then you are banned (perhaps unfairly) I think your instinct is just to give up...
I think that motivation and sadness are holding her back :(
