I wish people would stop saying Martina is so "stupid". She is not stupid, she is an addict. Addicts act irrationally, puting their drug of choice before their careers, they families, even their own lives. Martina :help: , Cocaine Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, something. She is deep denial right now. I hope someone convinces her to try a 12 step program.

Never, a big Martina fan, I was shocked and saddened by this news. I watched Martina play Sonia Mirza this summer in Carson, and what sticks out in my mind most is her changeover chair. All of her things, her bag, energy drinks, towels, etc were all neatly arranged, very tidy. Sonia's stuff was all thrown about near her chair, bag open spilling over. Not sure what this really means...

Good luck, Martina. I hope you get the help you need to live a productive and sober life.:wavey:

Addicts can be stupid. That's usually how they become addicts.
This is all speculation anyway, and this is a trollish thread if I ever saw one.

being smart or stupid has nothing to do with addiction. Some very intelligent folks are/were addicts, Drew Barrymore, Beethoven, Ray Charles, Jimmy Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Miles Davis, Jaime Lee Curtis, Roseanne, some of the Kennedy family members and many, many, others...

Oh for heaven's sake children .... :rolleyes:

Tina MAY have tested positive for a non-performance enhancing stimulant that is deemed illegal by dumbass authorities around the world. Hingis is a big girl, rather wealthy with it - and can take the appropriate measures if she has a problem with that nasty substance.

I'm not saying that you're right, but I think you might have nailed it. It's possible that she has some sort of addiction.

Can someone post that picture of her at the conference yesterday, and then see how old the woman looked?

I think she's possibly got some sort of addiction, or more likely, she has an illness, and the treatment she is under produces the metabolite which showed up on her test results. She probably doesn't want people to know about the illness, which is fair enough.

Making "stupid choices" is part of addiction. Like getting behind the wheel of a car when you are high or showing up at work loaded thinking no one would notice.

Martina Hingis got high knowing she would be random drug tested. And she is still denying it, despite the test results.

As I said, I am still in shock about this news. I will be the first to eat crow if the test results are wrong, but...

Martina is weak.

Martina and Serena both suffer from the same problem: their own ego.

Serena is a better player and a better athlete, so she can just about muddle along, looking fat, drained and sluggish (some might also call that weak). Martina runs away and retires because she can't face plummeting down the rankings, at the "old" age of....twenty seven. WTF?!?

Neither will face their problems, because in their own minds that would shatter their illusions of belonging at the top, as they are, almost by divine right.

Drugs will take their toll. Martina has retired from tennis, but she still could face criminal charges, like possession, if the authorities decide to search her house, car, etc. Cocaine is illegal everywhere (even in Switzerland) as far as I know. Perhaps if that happens it will be the wakeup call she needs.:confused:

Before too long, those who sold her the coke will be singing like birds...

I'm not going to make a call about Martina's guilt, I'm not sure anyone knows enough about what's going on to do so. Whatever the case, its an unbelievably tragic end to a great career, a sad day for tennis and if anything is going on, hopefully she's in a place to fix it. I find it hard to comprehend how long she's been hiding this secret, and i'm guessing that at least partially explains her weary appearance. Secrets are hard to keep, especially ones like these. Wonder why it hasn't been leaked earlier?

Addicts are very good at hiding their "secret". They will get mad if anyone even suggest they have a problem and avoid those who know something is wrong. Perhaps her mother knew, or her ever-changing boyfriends...

Just because you choose to do one line does not make you an addict. It could've been just an impulse thing at the time or something that happened in the spur of the moment, that she just regrets now.

I too believe she's an addict. For a former multi GS champion, I would expect her to play not worse than Patty Schnyder. She's fit and not injured, still she doesn't deliver. Why Patty, who's a couple of years older, looks and plays a much more fresher tennis. Or Bammer, or Davenport.

If you're talking about Hingis, she has had injuries since May onwards. I think it was either the back or the hip.

Bingo. Personally, I think Martina got with a few friends and decided to give it a try. Cocaine is the drug of choice for a lot of rich girls. Martina is just probably in the early stages of denial and doesn't want to upset fans. I think any rational person (and non-hateful folks) would understand that she's not perfect and made a mistake. I wish her the best because I have a cousin addicted to cocaine and it's not pretty. I don't believe Martina is at that stage though.

Addiction was never mentioned in the report....so let's stop that rumor....also the test was positive for a substance that may be similar to cocaine. many drugs that are used in the medical field mimic cocaine, without being cocaine, yet can produce a positive test. Poppy seeds can produce a positive opiates test, yet they are put on hamburger buns. So are they all opiate addicts for eating hamburgers? Come on people! quit the speculation and wait for the facts.

If Martina is addicted to cocaine, then Serena must be addicted to super-sized big mac. I have to say that even if Serena is one of my favourites. You are just making things up here which has no basis and it is only your twisted mind that she is addicted.

I will believe that she is an addict when I see a photo of her or hear people actually see her snorting coke.

I don't know why everyone keeps saying that Martina looks like she is in her late 30s, early 40s.

She looks her age imo.

She just has too much makeup on and is very stressed, upset, etc. Hard to look youthful in such conditions.

She doesn't look too bad from afar.

But there's a picture in one of yesterday's threads, which is now buried, which was quite shocking. I don't know why people are saying her make-up aged her - she wasn't wearing any! Or if she was, and she looked like that, then that's even worse. She looked well into her 30s, or even the age of a woman of 42 who'd looked after herself.

Of course, close-ups are not merciful even to the best of us. But still, Hingis has aged considerably.

And I think that sheds some light on this "too old to play professional tennis" business. She's only 27! I'm wondering whether there's an illness which she has suffered, for which she received medication, which produced the metabolite which cocaine use would normally show.

More integrity? :spit: Now I know you are doing this for a joke and this is a spoof thread from you and not serious at all. :haha: :haha: Very good, you had me there for a moment, but I caught on. :lol: :lol:

No prizes for guessing who this is :rolleyes:

Yes Serena Jameka Williams has more integrity than Justine Henin. I think so too. She doesn't have a questionable history of gamesmanship, she hasn't retired from a Grand Slam Final and last time I checked she also doesn't have an ex-husband. She says what she she thinks, she isn't duplicitous and I think this integral to Serena as a person.

It is obvious no major company wants Justine as their spokesperson. She has a very :eek: negative image, she not that attractive and it is hard to understand her when she speaks (English).:)

You have some points but I don't see the link between integrity and divorce.

Don't Hate.

Why bring Serena into Martina's debacle? Serena has not tested positive for coke. Martina has. She is an addict, in my opinion. A silly one too. Snorted coke before one of the biggest tournament knowing she could be drug tested???
She must have wanted to get caught.:angel:

Well it was you and those brain-dead Serena fans that brought Serena into this thread and make other Serena fans including me look bad. Not me, I am here to simply state something. Don't try to add oil to fire. Remember your proof right now is as good as thin air.

What a stupid thread, can't believe I'm replying in it. :rolleyes:

First of all, she's not an addict. She may have taken cocaine once but her hair tests were negative, which means that she is not a habitual user of it. Even the Swiss doctor working for the tennis federation claimed that. Besides, Martina does not look that old and even if she was, it wasn't because of coke. Athletes just age faster with all the vigorous training that they do.

...and Martina won't go to jail. I read in the newspaper today that the police do not normally interfere with athletes who get caught with drugs unless a formal complaint is made. They usually let the relevant organisation take care of it. So Hingis will not be a jailbird. :p

Martina Hingis is unlikely to face a criminal prosecution for possessing cocaine despite testing positive for the drug at this year’s Wimbledon, Scotland Yard said last night. The Metropolitan Police said it had not received a complaint that Hingis had committed any criminal offence within its jurisdiction, even though she had tested positive for the Class A drug.

A spokeswoman said: “A lot of sport-speople take drugs tests and some do fail them and it is usually not a police matter.

“We usually leave it to the governing body to investigate the matter and to bring whatever punishment is necessary under its rules. I cannot think of any sportsman ever being prosecuted simply for failing a drugs test. If we receive a complaint about a criminal offence, then we could investigate the matter but it would be for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to decide if it would be in the public interest to prosecute.” The maximum sentence for possessing a Class A drug is seven years in prison or an unlimited fine. However, a first-time offender would almost certainly receive a small fine.

A police source said last night that it would be difficult to bring a case against Hingis. Traces of cocaine can remain in urine for many weeks. “The first problem is we don’t even know where she is alleged to have taken this drug,” he said. “It might not even be in the UK, in which case it would not be within our jurisdiction anyway.”

The CPS ruled last year that Kate Moss, the model, would not face charges despite an “absolutely clear indication” on video that she took and supplied drugs. After police investigations costing £39,000, the CPS decided not to act because there was no way of proving whether the drug was cocaine, Ecstasy or an amphetamine. A police source said: “If we could not get a prosecution out of the Kate Moss allegations, then I cannot see the CPS bringing a case against Martina Hingis.”

If Martina is addicted to cocaine, then Serena must be addicted to super-sized big mac. I have to say that even if Serena is one of my favourites. You are just making things up here which has no basis and it is only your twisted mind that she is addicted.

I will believe that she is an addict when I see a photo of her or hear people actually see her snorting coke.

Serena being addicted to Big Mac has not forced her to retire under scandalous conditions, leave Serena out of this.

What do you mean? When did Serena test positive for any illegal substance? Do tell.

she was just lucky

Addiction was never mentioned in the report....so let's stop that rumor....also the test was positive for a substance that may be similar to cocaine. many drugs that are used in the medical field mimic cocaine, without being cocaine, yet can produce a positive test. Poppy seeds can produce a positive opiates test, yet they are put on hamburger buns. So are they all opiate addicts for eating hamburgers? Come on people! quit the speculation and wait for the facts.

Can you be more specific? What are these drugs that are used in the medical field that mimic cocaine and can produce a positive test? And which other athletes has this happened to when they tested positive for taking cocaine?

I really don't believe it. When you get tested there are 2 samples. Sample A and Sample B if sample B comesback and says she was clean then she is innocent. But Martina Hingis doing srugs????? Nah I just don't see it at allespecially her. She is to good.

idiotic assumption. she may well have a drug problem but speaking as if you're such an authority when it hasn't even been proven that she took the drug is very insensitive.
