    Just saw that Martin Damm partnered Radek Stepanek and lost in the first round of doubles...

    Didn't he retire a while ago and was even mentioned in some tennis articles to have become a teaching pro at the Nick Bollettieri academy and even coached Ryan Harrison for a bit earlier this year?

    I assume he's entering the doubles as a one-off exercise...but wouldn't he be ineligible to take part due to anti-doping laws? Something along the lines that he has to be available for in and out of competition testing?

    It's doubles so nobody really notices enough to care.

    I thought Martin retired. Interesting.
