Sad to say perhaps, but I reckon it a hundred times more likely that his late career surge has more to do with 'supplements' than support from the Dominican Republic tennis federation. 

 


 

I've no idea, but I assume you don't either.

So, with no actual info to go off, I don't think one should assume that there has been illegal activities.

Who is assuming anything (as fact)?

Saying something is more likely than something else is a hundred miles from saying it can be assumed (as a certain fact).

The facts present reasonable grounds for suspicion, nothing more. I don't believe in tennis fairy tales myself.

The guy was working hard as a coach.

It's well possible that he'd matured and saved enough to give it a go. He didn't break through earlier because he didn't play the pro matches. (I'm not saying that's fact either but a plausible story based on what he's said).

I also don't believe that doping has much impact in tennis. I know an Argentinian player (very lowly) who took illegal supplements, as did most of his friends. He said it made very little difference. Not saying they make NO difference but it's miles off cycling, running, swimming etc.

I played ITF Seniors three years there on the trot. I got to know one of the tournament doctors quite well and one day asked him which Argentine ATP players he thought were doping. He laughed at me and said they all were.

Two words " operation puerto " say it all. There is unfortunately a tight relationship between smoke and fire. insults to ones physiological reserve for example chemotherapy to mop up metastatic testicular don't generally increase ones capacity for arduous exercise.

Unfortunately expressing this view consistently to a friend involved in marketing a broccoli based shake utilising a chap with the same initials as the wider tinsel town conurbation ruined an enjoyable friendship, That friend was totally sucked in. In the balance of probabilities Eddie is right. It was an absolute travesty that operation puerto was not carried out in a timely fashion and allowed to reach its natural conclusion.

I have totally lost interest in athletics and cycling as a result and increasingly all sports where explosive power is at a premium. The evolution of Barcelona's pressing game during the 2000's unnerved me. One can however always reflect with absolute certainty that the achievements of one of Britains finest athletes will always remain untainted and for that Eddie I salute you.

Nobody seems to know - he is doing some coaching, but has been hitting at Gosling as well. Not entered anything this year yet.

Thanks for pointing this out - all 5 threads merged and moved as requested, creating a surprisingly long one!
