I'm really glad they banned him:

And I'm really happy to see this mentioned at the end of the article:

---
Odesnik spends part of the year training in Miami. He is coached by former top-10 player Guillermo Canas of Argentina, who served a 15-month ban in 2005-06 after failing a doping test.

So they deserve it, all they cheaters.

Why should he be punished? I think that this is rather unnecessary. Sure, he was caught with HGH, but he never failed a test, implying that he never used them. They should have let him go. So far he was clean,I mean, he probably would have used them, but he hadn't been tested dirty yet, so why punish him? That makes no sense to me...

Yep punish the peons. Doping in testing in tennis is a sham as in all sports. Not sure why busts need 2 even be posted. The top dogs will never be xposed. Governments have put gag orders and contracts out so nothing will ever be done. Yawner.

Possession is a punishable offense in the ITF rulebook. He got what he deserved.

Exactly! Absolutely no defense (or excuse) for holding HGH. Failed drug tests can be false positive. This is even worse. This idiot got caught with the goods on his person (or in his possession). He should be banned for life.

What if he was carrying it to give it to some famous tennis player (I don't want to speculate who).
