2004 Jan 12 - Rusedski's sponsor stands by him
Greg Rusedski has the full support of his main sponsor Donnay as he prepares to take on the ATP
and prove he is innocent of knowingly taking the performance enhancing drug nandrolone.
A spokesman for Donnay said:
“Greg is an outstanding tennis player and the last person who would contemplate taking any
"He has our complete support and in particular for the resolute stand he is taking against
the results of these drug tests.
"We look forward to him being cleared next month and this shadow being lifted from him.
"Donnay fully expects Greg to be exonerated following a tribunal in Montreal on February 9
which will investigate the circumstances that led to Greh being tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone.
"In particular, Donnay notes that the sport’s governing authorities decided not to take any
action against 46 of the world’s top 120 players whose samples taken last summer demonstrated
elevated levels of nandrolone because the remarkably high percentage of positive results could
not be logically and reliably explained.
"But the company is astonished and dismayed that when Greg was found to have failed the same
test and in the same circumstances he appears to have been singled out for prosecution."
