Thanks Allan.  If it is true then hopefully a 3 months ban will jolt him out of it.  If it is a 2 years ban then it will unfortunately wreck his career.

I am hoping that it is only a 3 months ban and will stimulate his hunger and desire for tennis and to become a stronger player after the ban.

Gasquet is fast becoming another wasted talent, one of the most naturally talented players to pick up a racquet.

I laughed a little too. If hes stupid enough to do that sort of thing, he deserves at least a 2 year ban. Tosser!

Gasquet has given a hair sample to try and prove he is not a regular user of cocaine, if that comes back positive then he will get two years but I think that's unlikely to happen.

Well, even if he is not a regular user, he will still get penalised as an occasional user or even a once-off user.  You have to wonder why?  Beacuse it's there?  Because he can afford it?  He certainly never struck me as a risk taker.  What a sorry state of affairs (if it's true).

I suspect a bit of both.  It's disappointing to think that someone so talented would choose to bugger things up for himself.  Frown

You just never know why people do what they do.  A friend died just recently - inherited literally millions from TV station ownerships, was a PhD, great wife etc etc and quite literally drank himself to death.  Now, is that sad or what.

Could he not handle having so much money? Some people fall in depression when they suddenly have all the money they could dream of.

No, I don't think the money was the problem.  He inherited it from his father and he and his father had been in partnership for many years, so he had been wealthy for many years.  He also "managed" the family's assets and was accustomed to vast sums of money ......... dunno.  But I think he is a great example of someone who "apparently" had everything.

Maybe Gasquet is a natural player who doesn't like tennis that much but does it because it's a better than an office job? I like playing tennis but I don't think I'd like to do it as a job, I think I would get bored of it Think

Now that ^ I could agree with.  I have known a couple of people who have turned a hobby into a job and hated it thereafter.

Repetitive ball whacking is not your style - you need a challenge ........SPEAKING OF WHICH .....WHERE'S MY AVATAR ??!!
