Re: Sharapova Ban Thread [3] - Appeal submitted to CAS 14th June.

She wanted to keep her weakness private ( in case of security breach ) ? And she did not read the relevant emails?

Re: Sharapova Ban - Appeal submitted to CAS 14th June.

It's actually very weak (possibly deliberately so). Basically, accusations.

Very likely... no ban.

Why would the ITF want to ban Sharapova :oh:?

That's what they want people to think. In the real world ... no.

Re: Sharapova Ban - Appeal submitted to CAS 14th June.

So?

You think/assume it's PED. She said it's her medication.





Again, so?

Re: Billie Jean King: Serena is done

I think it is. It basically suggests Serena should retire.

Serena is a target now. Things can get really nasty. The Meldonium fallout may destroy the WTA.

Re: NIKE reinstates Maria sharapova

Maybe 'riff' is on PED ( Politically Enhanced Drugs ) . Or maybe 'riff' took the blue pill :shrug:.

Re: Sharapova banned for 2 years, Sharapova to appeal

Not really. Meldonium was not banned in 2014/15. And she did not knew it was banned until she was notified.

Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - Hearing 18-19th May

The hugh spike in positive test results suggests a signature-confirmation system/process is needed.






ITF/WADA does not have a "zero-tolerance policy".

Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - Hearing 18-19th May

No signature/confirmation? No play then. Tracking down the athletes is not a problem.

If the decision is not agreeable to Sharapova/her company, she'll likely take the ITF/WTA and WADA to...

Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - Hearing 18-19th May

It's a calculated risk. If it's feasible, all then. But then again, are athletes outside the top 500 even get tested?




Each federation take care of their own athletes and onsite tournament...

Are the rules/contracts reasonable enough when challenged in court?

Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - Hearing 18-19th May

Sharapova is going to lose tens of millions of dollars if she is official banned ( she is already losing millions of dollars right now). It's not just about not able to play tennis anymore. It's...

Re: Umpire accuses Venus of on court coaching against Cornet

The ump assumes Venus was going to 'cheat' because she was just reaching for her bag?

I think we all deserve an explanation why Venus was treated this way. It is not right and very hurtful.

Re: Sharapova/Meldonium Thread (2) - Hearing 18-19th May

What she wrote is not based on speculations. This part is interesting ...

"Perhaps for the westerners, a notification by email is official enough, ..."

I don't think so for most courts.

Re: Umpire accuses Venus of on court coaching against Cornet

It might be an error. But it's definitlely an insult.
