Belgians in Trouble with Doping Tribunal

Posted by gauloises1 on October 1, 2009

Get this: compatriots Xavier Malisse and Yanina Wickmayer have been summoned to appear before an anti-doping commission due to infringements.

Apparently it’s to do with that ‘whereabouts’ rule that Murray is always banging on about. Wicky has broken it three times in the past 18 months, Malisse twice, in addition to which he has missed a drug test. The hearings will take place on October 8th for Malisse and October 22nd for Wicky.

    That rule is absolutely ridiculous especially if you live out of a suitcase and your wherabouts depend on a plethora of factors you can’t control. Plus having someone keep tabs on you like that is just plain creepy and Big Brother-ish. Being an insolent brat, if I were expected to say where exactly I was going to be in three months I’d answer, “banging your mom.” I would be the ITF’s worst nightmare.

    LOL Joan!

    The rule is ridiculous, but I surely hope that neither player is suspended. I’m a new Wicky fan and Malisse is pretty. DON’T TAKE AWAY THE PRETTY !!!!!

    You think Malisse is pretty?!

    HE HAS A TAJ MAHAL FOREHEAD. I’m sorry, but it’s true. I suffer from the same condition, so I’m alert to it in others.

    LOL. I really wasn’t aware that Malisses’s pretty was debatable. I mean, I’m not sure I’ve ever discussed it with others, I just assumed it was a given. I REALLY like long hair on guys. I just google imaged him, and he’s not great with short hair, bur the long hair is PERFECT. His forehead doesn’t bother me.

    I never thought about Malisse much, in terms of being pretty, but then I ran into him repeatedly in person at my hotel in Indian Wells. And, yeah, I’d have to say he cleans up pretty well in person.

    I love to watch Malisse play tennis, he is very talented, he has a hot temper so I can imagine that these anti doping rules are too much for him. While I do not find him particularly handsome, he is attractive overall in my taste, he has sex appeal in my view.

    @Linex – hot temper is a mild description. The video of him having a hysterical, screaming, thrashing temper tantrum on court once still remains the most awesome thing ever in the history of tennis. It was like he was possessed by a 2-year-old. Not sexy, LOL. Whereas Gonzo’s butt-wiping on the line at Roland Garros was cheeky (heh heh) enough to not dent his manliness.
