    What's the status of Gasquet's standing with the ATP? I know that an initial decision came down and that he didn't get the full suspension. Wasn't there another (final) hearing scheduled for the end of the year?

    He is waiting for a decision. He will find out at some point before xmas (they haven't given a date). he's entered for tournaments next year at the moment. Brisbane, Sydney and presumably AO.

    I hope they will just let Gasquet comeback. It wasn't his fault girls were all over him :)

    Anyone know what the possible suspensions might be? I've looked around and haven't found a recent article. Any links?

    I want to learn about this too.Hopefully someone will keep us updated.WADA had appealed and he waits for the final decision.But it's so frustrating and annoying that they can't give a definite date at least.:rolleyes:
    I hope this story finishes soon so he can start concetrating back fully in tennis.

    they could completely disregard the decision of the first tribunal and give him a 2 year ban
    they could give him a 1 year ban (this is the min that the ITF are seeking)
    they could reaffirm the decision of the first tribunal
    they could actually make a decision of no fault or negligence i.e. completely dismiss it and find him innocent.

    He should hear on the 18th.

    like we haven't heard that one before. No matter what you say about him he plays beautiful tennis and I'd rather watch 10 mins of him than hours of anyone else, win or lose.

    Sounds like the ITF feels as though a 1 year ban would be justified. That could be tough for Gasquet to beat since his excuse seems shaky.

    I checked his page and it went from single to
    "It's complicated".

    EDIT:
    Now it's says, "Working on it".

    Hmm.

    Well, hope he makes it back strong and he gets his merd together so he can treat us all to tennis' version of le beau jeu / jogo bonito / beautiful game.

    Gasquet To Find Out Decision On Cocaine Ban

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/8417167.stm

    The 23-year-old attended a CAS hearing in Switzerland last month and the court will reveal its verdict at 1630 GMT on Thursday.

    Gasquet has previously said that the drug got into his system after he kissed the woman in a nightclub in Miami.

    The tribunal supported his claim and felt that because "no more than a grain of salt" was recorded in the sample a long ban would have been an injustice.


    He is obviouly not using if that is all that was found in his system. if he is banned for 2 years, it will be disgraceful IMO to wreck someone's career for that long.

    Of course, we have to wonder if the Agassi situation will be a factor in any future decisions.

    I disagree about the first part, but the unmotivated part is what scares me. Maybe he just doesn't really care enough about result, maybe he just wants to make enough money for decent living and parties. I really hope it's not too late for him.
