Karatancheva is not the only one

Before people start casting stones at Sesil for being the shame of women's tennis, if it's true she was using steroids, does anybody believe she's the first or the only WTA player who's using them? Come on. She's 16 years old, somebody had to have introduced her to it. Sesil is just the stupid inexperienced one who got caught. If Sesil was cheating with drugs, there are for sure others doing it as well.

Is there some reason why most of the people get busted at the French Open?

I think sesil is being pushed too hard by her handlers.They pushed her into the big league before she was ready,physically or mentally,and now they get her into a mess like this.I don't believe Sesil is to blame for this.Someone in charge of her career is making a real mess of things.

Sesil is not the first,nor will she be the last player to get caught for doping.

you don't know someone introduced her to it, for all any of us know she felt pressured by being the new "young sensation" and felt the need to charge her game up, albeit illegally. I know you are probably one of her biggest fans on this board but you shouldn't look at things with rose tinted glasses. It's all speculation so thats why none of us should pass judgement. I hope it isn't true but its sad if it is. We'll see what comes out in the next few weeks. Wasn't Kuznetsova caught doping a while ago too? What did the ITF do about that? Thanks if anyone knows

it's very fortunate for the WTA that this turned out to be a "Black Sheep" type player rather than one of their stars. They are going to try to marginalize Sesil as much as they can now, to push her further away from the main flock of the WTA and minimize the PR damage.

If Sesil was a big star, it would have been covered up or they would have arranged for "I had a cold" defense. It's the same in Hollywood. Winona Ryder shoplifted for years, but it's only when she was shit at the box office and no longer an "A" celebrity that they threw her to the wolves. And you wouldn't believe some of the stuff I did in the 50s.

I believe Kuznetsova allegedly tested positive for ephedrine during the off season - ephedrine apparently isn't banned during the off season, only 'in competition' i.e. WTA/ITF events. I think her alleged test occured whilst playing at Henin's annual charity event.

Tougher controls and an obviously more vigilant press? I don't think it's an accident Agassi has announced he's not playing the French anymore. The other clay tournies were thrown in to make it look good.

It was in France that the current anti-doping crusade began with the Festina scandal back in 1998.
