Good point - it’s a shame as she had such long career, sad way to end (assuming sentence is long)

A very candid response by Spears. I hope it’s genuine!

Seeing Mattek-Sands name among those who have liked Spears post isn't reassuring at all. I wonder if she recommended the "doctor" she used?

She's a really nice lady, so this response should be taken as genuine.

Re: Abigail Spears fails a dope Test and is Suspended

Very disappointed in Abi Also her story is what we hear almost every time and it's really hard to believe that all these world class athletes are in fact pretty sick people who suffer from hearth issues, vitamin deficiencies, ADHD, asthma etc etc

Well, she is nearing 40, so it is possible. As I said above, she's a genuine person (I interviewed her a couple of times at World Team Tennis), so I believe her.

Re: Abigail Spears fails a dope Test and is Suspended

She should name and shame the doctor and the one who recommended him/her.

Re: Abigail Spears fails a dope Test and is Suspended

Well rules are rules, and she got caught. While ignorance might garner some sympathy, it's clear that it can't be used as a defense. She just has to suck it up and take the consequences.
