18 miesięcy?? Jestem w lekkim szkoku, czasem sportowcy za wykrycie dopingu dostają rocznego bana (albo dostawali, w sumie nie śledze tego aż tak dokładnie). Może się wywinie jak Wickmayer.

http://eurosport.onet.pl/tenis/viktor-t ... ywny/ex5qwViktor Troicki: wyniki moczu i krwi dały wynik negatywny
- Wszystko wydarzyło się wiosną w Monte Carlo. Dokładnie 15 kwietnia. Czułem się fatalnie tego dnia przed, w trakcie i po meczu pierwszej rundy z Jarkko Nieminenem - przypomina Troicki w rozmowie z tennisconnected.com.
- Zostałem wybrany do oddania próbki moczu i na test krwi. Na kontrolę udałem się po prysznicu i rozciąganiu. Oddałem próbkę moczu i powiedziałem pani doktor, że bardzo źle się czuję i mam wrażenie, że jak pobiorą mi krew, to będzie jeszcze gorzej. Zawsze jest mi niedobrze, kiedy muszę oddawać krew, a tamtego dnia bałem się, że wyląduję w szpitalu - przekonuje 27-letni Serb.
Międzynarodowa Federacja Tenisowa (ITF) nałożyła na Troickiego 18-miesięczne zawieszenie nie za stosowanie dopingu, ale w konsekwencji uniknięcia przez tenisistę kontroli krwi.
- Pani doktor, która przeprowadzała kontrolę, spojrzała na mnie i powiedziała, że wyglądam bardzo blado i niezdrowo. Dodała też, że jeśli napiszę do ITF-u list z wyjaśnieniem okoliczności, to będę mógł nie przystąpić do pobrania krwi. Podyktowała mi treść i pozwoliła odejść. Była wtedy dla mnie bardzo pomocna i wyrozumiała - opowiada Troicki.
- Teraz oskarża się mnie o odmowę poddania się testowi krwi bez podania przyczyny. To prawdziwy koszmar. Byłem w stu procentach pewny, że wszystko było w porządku. Podobnie mój trener, Jack Reader, który przynajmniej przez połowę całej procedury siedział ze mną w tym samym pokoju - dodaje tenisista.
Niezależnie od przyczyn nieprzystąpienia do pobrania krwi w danym dniu, o braku złej woli zawodnika wydaje się świadczyć przede wszystkim fakt, że... był czysty.
- Krew oddałem następnego dnia rano w asyście tej samej pani doktor. Rezultaty testów, zarówno moczu jak i krwi, otrzymałem później. Oba dały wynik negatywny - ujawnia Troicki, według którego nałożona w tych okolicznościach półtoraroczna kara jest zwykłą niesprawiedliwością.
- Jestem rozbity i wykończony. Cały czas myślę o tej sprawie, a to przecież jeszcze nie koniec. Nawet nie potrafię opisać swoich odczuć, ale chyba nawet nie jestem zły na tę panią doktor. Przypuszczam, że powiedziano jej, że wypuszczenie mnie z kontroli było poważnym błędem z jej strony. Wycofała się, żeby nie stracić pracy - zgaduje Troicki, który będzie się odwoływać od nałożonych sankcji.
- Ufam w sprawiedliwość Sportowego Sądu Arbitrażowego w Lozannie. Naprawdę wierzę, że będą poszukiwać prawdy i ją odnajdą. A ta jest tylko jedna. Jestem całkowicie przekonany, że dostrzeżona zostanie moja dobra wola i niewinność. Na dzisiaj jednak ta ogromna dyskwalifikacja sprawia, że nie wiem, co powiedzieć. Mam wrażenie, że świat, który pomagałem budować dzień po dniu zawiódł mnie po całości. To najgorsze uczucie, jakie sobie można wyobrazić - żali się Serb.
Viktor Troicki jest obecnie sklasyfikowany na 53. miejscu rankingu ATP, choć zaledwie dwa lata temu był na najwyższej w karierze, dwunastej pozycji. W turniejach wielkoszlemowych zachodził najdalej do czwartej rundy (dwukrotnie we French Open i raz w Wimbledonie). W dorobku ma jedno zwycięstwo w turniejach APT - w 2010 roku w finale w Moskwie pokonał w trzech setach Markosa Pagdatisa. Jeśli nałożone przez ITF zawieszenie nie zostanie cofnięte, to na korty powróci najwcześniej 24 stycznia 2015 roku.
http://www.sportinglife.com/tennis/news ... oicki-ban/Troicki: My dreams are over
Viktor Troicki says his "dreams of being a top player" are over after the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled he should serve a 12-month suspension for a doping offence.
The Serbian, who will not be able to play again until July 15 next year, had initially been banned for 18 months but had argued the punishment should be overturned.
Troicki was given the initial punishment in July by an International Tennis Federation anti-doping tribunal after refusing to give a blood sample during the Monte Carlo Masters in April.
The decision comes 11 days after Croatia's Marin Cilic had his nine-month ban for failing a doping test reduced to four months, clearing him to play again.
In a statement, CAS said it determined Troicki "had committed a doping offence, but that his fault was not significant," and that 12 months was the minimum he could serve in such a situation in accordance with ITF anti-doping rules. A one-year ban was considered a ''just and appropriate sanction'' by the panel.
Troicki's home federation described the verdict as ''humiliating and disappointing.''
''Serbia's Tennis Association is deeply disappointed with such a decision,'' it said in a statement. ''Viktor Troicki has been inflicted a major injustice.''
At the centre of the case is a disagreement between the player and the doping control officer (DCO) over what happened when he was selected to be tested in Monte Carlo.
Troicki has always insisted the officer told him it would be okay to miss the test because he was feeling unwell and has a severe phobia of needles.
But the doping official denied Troicki's version of events and the ITF tribunal agreed she had given no such assurance.
The full CAS decision stated that the recollection of Mr Troicki was “coloured by his subsequent reconstruction of events” and that any such subjective interpretation did not amount to ‘compelling justification’ to forego the test.
In a statement released through his manager, Troicki said: "I hoped that the most difficult period of my career and of my life would be over, and I really trusted the judges I met in Lausanne. I had the feeling that they were really looking for the truth and that they had found it during the hearing."
"Now this decision puts an end to my dreams of being a top player, of reaching the ATP finals and fighting against the best in the world. I worked my entire life for it, and it has been taken away from me in one afternoon by a doctor I didn't know."
"Regarding the TAS (CAS) I can only say that they are humans, and they probably didn't have the courage to go against the ITF releasing me and putting ITF in a bad situation. I am sure they feel bad about it, but in the end they will all go back to their jobs tomorrow, including (DCO) Doctor Gorodilova, and I won't."
"I thank everyone who has supported me so far - Novak (Djokovic), Janko (Tipsarevic), my family, my team and everyone who truly believes I am innocent. I won't forget it."
"I have no idea about what to do now or where to go. I hope somehow I will be able to fight back."
The ITF tribunal praised Dr Gorodilova as "conscientious and cautious" but the CAS panel said she "should have informed the player in clearer terms of the risks caused by his refusal to undergo a blood test".
The statement continued: "There was no suggestion that Mr Troicki intended to evade the detection of a banned substance in his system."
Troicki, whose ban had originally been due to run until January 2015, had hoped to be cleared to play for Serbia in the Davis Cup final later this month.
The 27-year-old has received a lot of support from his fellow players, especially countryman and Davis Cup team-mate Djokovic.
Talking about the case in Beijing last month, Djokovic accused the doping control officer of lying.
He said: "I don't see why they're keeping him suspended. For what? For failing to provide the blood test? He said to the lady that day that he's not feeling well. 'Can I provide (a sample) tomorrow?' She said, 'Yes, if you write a report'.
"He wrote the report, and the next thing you know she's failing to say the truth in the court. She was saying that he was convincing him, that it took her 20 minutes to walk from anti-doping office to the ATP office in Monte Carlo, which is 20 metres. So she was lying a lot. That's very bad for our sport."
Top-ranked Rafael Nadal expressed support for Troicki, whom he called ''a good guy.''
''I hope to see him back on tour next year,'' Nadal said at the ATP World Tour Finals in London. ''The doctor who accepted to make the control the next day, if that's that way, that's a big mistake from the doctor, too.''
Troicki reached a career-high ranking of 12 in 2011 after reaching the fourth round of the French Open, where he led Andy Murray by two sets to love before eventually losing in five.
In giving his reaction to the verdict, ITF president Francesco Ricci Bitti expressed his disappointment at the criticism of the doping control officer.
The CAS panel were critical of Dr Gorodilova for allowing the confusion that led Troicki and his coach Jack Reader to become convinced he would not receive any punishment for missing the test.
Ricci Bitti said in a statement: "We respect the ruling of the Court of Arbitration for Sport, who confirmed the decision of the independent tribunal that Viktor Troicki is guilty of an anti-doping violation, although they reduced the penalty to one year."
"What is harder to accept is criticism of doping control officers, who perform a difficult role."
It will surely be a source of private frustration to the ITF that bans in two high-profile cases have been reduced, and Ricci Bitti added: "We should all remember that exactly one year ago anti-doping programmes around the world were under scrutiny."
"This reinforced the need to be vigilant and apply the rules strictly, something that we and our partners in the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme strive to do to keep our sport clean."

Jak najwięcej takich pięknych zwyciestw w nowym roku i nowych reklam , które poprawiają mi humor .You just had the hardest year in your career. How, from a distance, you look at everything that's happened?
Well, everyone has good and bad moments in his life, and this is what life is all about. Face obstacles to become a better person. I have learned a lot from this and I have become stronger and wiser.
Next year could be a year of great returns. Do you have, after all, more motivation to play than before the punishment?
Definitely. When I played every day on the tour, I took everything for granted. Things become a routine. But once I stopped I realized how much I love this sport and how much I love competing.
What is your experience after and during Davis Cup finals, especially the fact that the people in the stands were wearing a mask with your face on it and the whole Arena repeatedly chanting your name?
That was a really tough moment. I watched both matches, semifinal and final on TV at home. I really appreciated the warmth of the Serbian Fans, but had to cry quite a bit as well watching it.
What is more important for you you from the career perspective - return to ATP tennis tournaments or the opportunity to be again part of the Davis cup team?
Both things go hand in hand. If I will be able to win on ATP tour level, then I will be a help for our team. Of course, coming back and play Davis Cup in front of my home crowd will mean the real end of this chapter. Then I will be able to say that it is behind me.
What will satisfy you in the year 2014.? What are your goals?
I don't have a specific ranking goal. I know I want to get back stronger than before, improve all the aspects of my game and improve both my best ranking and my results. I don't know how long it will take, but this is what I will work for.
Do you see yourself and your colleagues as conquerors of the Davis Cup next year?
As you know I won't be able to help the team out in the first two rounds, but in case they make it though, count on me for the semifinals, I will make sure I am ready. Winning the title? Well, we have one of the best Davis Cup players in history in our team. As long as Nole will lead our team, we will definitely have a chance to win each year.
Will the forced tennis break affect negatively or positively on you, your form, your high level of tennis?
Well it is difficult to say now. I can say that I was really down when it all began, and even more when the TAS reduce the sentence to 12 months. But I have been getting better each day, and I have learned to look ahead and not back. How I will perform after a 12 month stop is very difficult to predict. I know I will work and live each day only to come back, then we will see the outcome when competition starts.
Can you continue as if nothing happened? What are your plans for the begining of 2014?
As I said, I am not someone who likes to cry about himself saying he is unlucky or so. Half of the 12 months are already gone, and I am looking only ahead, not back. It is not continuing like nothing happened. It is more making the best out of what happened. In detail it means I will prepare the fitness following Milo's plans and work on my game with Jack. July will be here before we think, so we don't have to waste any time.
How important was for you the support from your teammates, and other players who are not from Serbia, who openly stood on your side?
The support I got from the players was fantastic and very important for me. Novak showed me that he is a true friend and that he has the right character to lead the tour and change the things that don't work. The support of the players already determined the changes in the anti doping rules from the first of january: The doping control officer will not be allowed to release any player who doesn't do a test. He will have to call the tournament supervisor, in order to have an independent witness. I am glad that we achieved it, so nobody will ever have to go through what I went through.
How far does it look July 15th , or the moment when you will officially be able to return to the courts?
July is around the corner. I will work day by day to improve my shots, my game and my overall fitness. The good thing about our sport is that you get new chances every week.
