    Cold turkey anyone?

    scotroutes: I’ve heard what you appear to be implying mentioned a few times in connection with Nadal. Is there any evidence to back it up or is it all internet gossip?

    I was just suggesting something to go with the cucumber sandwiches.

    Clearly his blood bag isn’t working! yes there is evidence he has worked with Fuentes .. who also states he didn’t just work with cyclists during the doping era but tennis players and footballers!

    See the drugs don’t work … Come on Darcis…

    Nadal is clearly still injured.

    Or injured. I’m not convinced its his knee that is causing the problem.

    That’s why he said to his disciples ” Don’t eat my Easter Eggs, I’ll be back in a bit”

    After glancing at Crikeys link written like that, I thought tennis had an asteroid problem.
    Maybe Scotroutes is saying that he has watched too much tennis recently and is trying to give it up.

    Bruce Willis will be along shortly to resolve that problem

    First competitive match on grass since last year.

    Not too smart really – such a big difference in the surface from clay, and the grass hasn’t dried out yet.

    Strange that Nadal is equally built up on both sides of his body if he doesn’t do weights, or does he do some other form of workout – like kettle bells.

    Only thing is that the way he plays is very physically demanding and you would have thought that he would have been playing somewhat like since being a kid, before he would have been exposed to the possibility of steriod/drug abuse.

    His knee problems were to be expected from his style, a bit like Tiger Woods and his old swing.

    Also there has been a history of very strong spanish players, something to do with playing on the clay with very long rallies.

    I remember hearing commentators saying at the beginning of Nadal’s career that his playing style – lots of explosive power in his running and turning – was a recipe for injuries later in his career. Compared with Federer, who is a lot smoother and economical in his running, you can see their point.

    That blog’s terrible: “Nadal was given an out of competition drug test according to ITF records (these records do not tell whether a player tested positive or negative).” As if the only outcome from a positive would be a note in ITF records! Attempts to muddy clear waters. No action = no positive.

    Rafa can be a wee bit of a drama queen but there’s reasonable explanations for that, when you’re not doing well it’s nice to have a reason- whether real or not, whether you believe it or not. And as a hugely succesful athlete in a sport with many top end events, not turning up for every one shouldn’t be suspicious.

    Not saying there’s not some room for suspicion, mind. But as the blog goes on and he’s had enough of evidence-free drugs accusations, he moves onto accusations of unsportsmanlike behaviour and it becomes pretty obvious it’s really just “I don’t like this person”

    It raises the issue, and I think there is one.

    Well we know some tennis players have been at it, so which ones?
