Gasquet Tests Positive for Cocaine

Posted by gauloises1 on May 9, 2009

The French media is reporting that Richard Gasquet has tested positive for what is classified as a recreational drug in Miami this past March.

Can’t translate this

But I hope this isn’t true.

(OK, I know this isn’t funny, but when I ran that article through Google Translate, I got for the last paragraph:

Earlier in the afternoon, Francis Gasquet, the player’s father, told RMC that his son had “fallen from the nude” in learning what was still a rumor.

You have to laugh.)

UPDATE: According to Savannah’s World, L’Equipe is reporting that the drug in question was cocaine at a level of 1.45 micrograms. This could result in a possible two-year suspension.

    OMG Reeshie!!!!

    yup it’s true, fall from the nude made me laugh though. It’s a french expression similar to shocked or flabbergasted. They’re saying that Richie’s team hasn’t released a statement yet, and there waiting for additional tests. I’ m very surprised by that, I must say…

    wanted to add, Richie has a ruthless lawyer Karim Achaoui, look him up. He’s known as lawyer of the mafia, so I don’T think they’ll throw the towel any time soon. Expect a long trial if there is one…still wow, of all the people.

    That sucks. That really, truly, sucks.

    Although if it’s true, it would certainly explain why he’s never lived up to his potential. And IF it’s true, he needs his arse well and truly kicked. Hard.

    I hope it’s all some horrible mistake. But if not, then I hope he gets his act together. Stupid kid.

    Sad for Reeshie, if it’s true and he is guilty, and I mean, IF. So much pressure on his shoulders. Sigh.

    Its was those down market cheerleaders he posed with. Cheerleaders will always always be one’s downfall. Don’t listen to Heroes, if you save the cheerleader, she’ll fuck your shit up!

    It actually wouldn’t surprise me that much, if it does turn out to be true. I mean, Richie’s basically the Macaulay Culkin of tennis players.

    Or more accurately, the Lindsay Lohan.

    just hoping that the rest of the team is smart enough to deal with it, because I don’t get that at all from Richie…

    It is sad, but it might not be true. Have to wait for the B sample, I guess.
