Well this was weird. Nicolás Jarry was suspended today after failing to pass an anti doping test during the Davis Cup finals. He intends to appeal the decision.

Another guy recently suspended got 20 months for a first time offense. He might be gone for a good long while, assuming he isn't able to get this overturned.

Robert Farah also banned for failing a drugs test. This one is way bigger. World no. 1 doubles player. Will miss the AO.

I wonder why you don't ignore me. :unsure:
I'll answer this honestly and without guile: I find you entertaining and do admire your obsession with Rafa. I find it immature you relentlessly attack Fed instead of appreciating his greatness and not adopting Rafa's attitude towards Roger which has always been positive and complimentary. I look at it from a psychological perspective and find you definitely a cut above the other trolls here and are more sophisticated in your approach. Whereas they are insufferably boring, you're not. What's ultimately puzzling (and a trifle sad) is that I would characterize you more of a Federer hater than a Nadal lover, which can't possibly contribute to any personal happiness. I am a Fed fan but certainly like Rafa as well. It makes for a happier person, IMO, but only you would know if that holds true for you.

The conversation when his lawyer explains to him what strict liability means could be interesting.

Cilic with his inadvertent ingestion defense went from 9 months ban down to 4 after appealing to CAS. So there’s that.

Hmm, I reply to you comardes who attack Rafa! I wonder why you don't find it immature they (= trolls) relentlessy attack Rafa. :unsure:
I'm not going to compete with you in personal happiness rankings. You can consider yourself as happy as you want.

That's tipped the balance to what, 98% now?

And Jarry is far, far from the worst example.
I get what you're saying with homogenization, but there's still a bit of difference in surfaces as shown by his career record on both surfaces. He's capable of winning a clay tournament and nothing else.

I saw him and Garin play at the ATP Cup. Out of the 2, Jarry struck me as the one who was the better player on the Greenset hard court.

Imagine cheating in order to be a journeyman
Imagine cheating in order to be a journeyman ATP instead of challenger player.
Imagine cheating in order to be a top 20 instead of journeyman.
Imagine cheating in order to be a top 10 instead of top 20.
Imagine cheating in order to be a top 5 instead of top 10.

I can imagine that.
