The Official Tennis Thread

:lol!:

Well put.

Like it's not the done thing to be suspicious when a 36 year old man starts dominating a sport where traditionally the best years of a player's career are over once they hit 30.

Sampras14 slams, one in his 30s, 32 to be precise

, Lendl, 8 Slams, all in his 20s
Reached 19 Finals, one in his 30s


Becker, 6 Slams, all in his 20s

Agassi, 8 Slams, 2 in his 30s, his last one at 33 the young pup!

McEnroe, 8 Slams, none in his 30s

Edberg, 8 Slams, none in his 30s, his last one coming at 26

Connors, 8 Slams, 2 in his 30s, last one cming at 31.

So there we have 60 Grand slam wins, 5 won in their 30s, by a collection of some of the greatest players of all time.





Novak has 11 slams in his 30s. The next best is Nadal with 8. Next is Fed with 4.

Then we have Laver, who won 4 at 31.

Ken Rosewall won 4 in his 30s back in the 70s.

But no, nothing odd at all at all about the numbers won by Novak, Rafa and Roger. I mean, you wouldn't even be a small bit suspicious, would you? :rolleyes:
Quit living in the past, m8. They didn't have Kale back then.
 
i was reading about roxadustat the drug she was caught with. its an oral dose with a short half life.

its used to treat anemia because it slows the degredation of HIF1 (Haemoglobin Inducement Factor) so basically has the same effect on red bloodcell production as living/training at altitude.

she must have really fucked up to get the posotive and also trigger her ABP

its real next gen doping. plenty more to come here I'd say

Wait...you mean there are ways to dope but not get caught?...oh my word...mind absolutely blown.

I've just thrown my superfood salad in the bin in disgust.

Amirite that she blamed a contaminated supplement?
Some supplement to have a presumably complex, synthetic, rare and expensive molecule fucked into it by mistake.

yeah, I think that they accepted that her excuse of contaminated suppliments was plausible but the quantity of dope in her sample made it not credible. 4 years is a big ban so i presume this wasn't her first rodeo

What...you mean people can have questionable test results but given the benefit of the doubt?...OK, that's tomorrow morning's super smoothie down the sink.
