every player must have taken some sort of illegal drug at one point because every player is looking to get ahead of the other player. And if they are on top they want to stay on top and they will use any means necisarry to stay on top

He was a good player, but i guess he was one of those players trying to compete on the same level as others

It's all in the news over here,its a shame that it happened.

The ATP responded to Greg Rusedski's claim that he had been 'singled out' following his positive test for nandrolone.

The British number two's defence centres around the case of Czech player Bohdan Ulihrach, who was initially found guilty of using nandrolone and banned for two years, but won an appeal when it emerged that ATP trainers had been giving players mineral supplements, electrolytes and other supplements.

If he is guilty he should be banned no to ways about it,he shouldn't have done it in the first place.It's no good whinging and whining about it now.

Well im sorry but how the hell would you not know that you was taking steroids,that is a little hard to believe due to the big change it would have made to his body.Then again if your going to admit drug abuse why not say you mistakingly took it or you just didn't know.

More on Rusedski..

World anti-doping chief Dick Pound has raised hopes that Greg Rusedski may be able to clear his name over his drug-taking controversy.

Pound, head of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), said if Rusedski could prove his claim that his positive test for nandrolone came as a result of supplements being provided by ATP trainers then it would be hard for any ban to be imposed.

I would have never thought that McEnroe would be on roids. He didn't even look like he was on it with his skinny frame and all.
