Gasquet's status
 
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?

I think he finds out by the end of next week.

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.

He is in eight ball status of course.

AJK1 12-09-2009 06:17 PM

His status among tennis fans is he's overrated....

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.

Gasquet's status: Overrated and Unmotivated.

Cloudy, thanks for the details. I guess we'll hear something in a few more days.

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.

norbac 12-15-2009 12:30 PM

Thanks for the updates Cloudy. Now I can just pray that Richard will be cleared to play.

Agree. I'll take beautiful tennis any day.

1hbhBUX 12-16-2009 05:04 AM

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.

malakas 12-16-2009 05:10 AM

they took off the ban from Malisse maybe this is a good indication.:?

slice bh compliment 12-16-2009 05:15 AM

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.

Cloudy 12-16-2009 10:12 AM
