Lol, I hadn't seen this before.
Novak wrote a book 'explaining' his transformation:

Serve to Win: The 14-Day Gluten-Free Plan for Physical and Mental Excellence.

Novak Djokovic reveals the gluten-free diet and fitness plan that transformed his health and pushed him to the pinnacle.

In 2011, Novak Djokovic had what sportswriters called the greatest single season ever by a professional tennis player: He won ten titles, three Grand Slams, and forty-three consecutive matches. Remarkably, less than two years earlier, this champion could barely complete a tournament. How did a player once plagued by aches, breathing difficulties, and injuries on the court suddenly become the #1 ranked tennis player in the world? The answer is astonishing: He changed what he ate.

But, it's true!


It was a life-changing moment. Novak Djokovic was in Croatia in the summer of 2010 for a Davis Cup tie and was having a consultation with Dr Igor Cetojevic, a nutritionist and fellow Serb.

Cetojevic told Djokovic to stretch out his right arm while placing his left hand on his stomach. The doctor then pushed down on Djokovic’s right arm and told him to resist the pressure. The strength Djokovic would feel in holding firm, the doctor said, was exactly what he should experience.

Next Cetojevic gave Djokovic a slice of bread. He told the bemused player not to eat it but to hold it against his stomach with his left hand while he again pushed down on his outstretched right arm. To Djokovic’s astonishment, the arm felt appreciably weaker.

It was what Cetojevic had expected. His crude test had been to discover whether Djokovic was sensitive to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other bread grains. Looking back, it was the moment when Djokovic discovered why he had suffered so many mid-match collapses in his career – and the starting point for a lifestyle change which led to his becoming world No 1 just 12 months later.

Well now we know how to beat him: just have a ball boy sneak a couple of slices of bread into his seat cushion and he'll lose all his magic powers :rolleyes:

"Nadal hits out at doping accusers, says rivals are 'totally clean'"
The 14-times grand slam winner said that people who have accused him of doping are unhappy with their own lives, and do not like his style of play.

They do it because evidently they have a personal problem and are unhappy with themselves
http://www.eurosport.com/tennis/nadal-hits-out-at-doping-accusers-says-rivals-are-totally-clean_sto5563210/story.shtml
How would Nadal know?

In making this unprovable statement, Nadal effectively tars his peers with the same suspicions that dog him.

What's that about athletes checking everything they put into their mouths in case of contamination or spiking?
Why would she do that?

She's not worried about contamination or spiking, seriously.

She's as protected as an athlete can get, against the USADA especially. She's not like LA in that they were gunning for him to make a name for their selves. She's immune to antidoping efforts worldwide, and always will be.

No, she don't have to worry what she puts in her body....

A Brazilian top 60 ranked doubles player, Marcelo Demoliner, tests positive for a prohibited substance, (HCTZ, a diuretic and masking agent), admits to committing an anti-doping rule violation, and gets a THREE MONTH ban...

Why is this ban so short? What mitigating factors were there? Why so little information from ITF?

I've been watching the French open quite a bit over the last few days and heard some interesting things from the commentators for ITV4

"22 is the new 19 given that 51 of the mens draw are over 30" - Just about 40%

yesterday it mentioned there were just 4 teenagers in the draw (im assuming mens draw too), this was mentioned while 37 year old Radek Stepanek ran down every ball from Andy Murray and went to 5 sets.

All of the commentary is on how the game is ageing, there are never any comments on how the 30+ guys can charge down every ball far better than the teenagers.

EDIT: Stepanek is the oldest man to play in a grand slam since 1991.

Tennis to announce provisional suspensions in future.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tennis/2016/05/25/international-tennis-federation-to-change-anti-doping-procedures/

The headline "International Tennis Federation to change anti-doping procedures to stop the 'silent ban" is misleading, as this does not pertain to what most fans think of as a silent ban.

It refers to announcing adverse analytic findings in advance of a disciplinary tribunal's adjudication that the athlete committed an anti-doping rule violation. This is not at all the same as suspending an athlete for an ADRV, but keeping that sanction secret, a practice that some fans/commentators have speculated about in the past (including Nadal's French former-ministerial pal).

I'm all for increased transparency, but not announcing provisional suspensions in advance of a tribunal is not that big of a step forward, IMHO. I believe there many more impactful things that the ITF could do to augment their anti-doping program.

And there won't be, if Joe & Josephine Commentator want to keep their jobs.
