2004 Jul 31 - Rusedski blasts ATP
Greg Rusedski has not received any support from the ATP since clearing his name of the nandrolone
doping charges earlier this year.
There was talk from various sources of protecting his ATP ranking so he would still be entered into
the main draws of major events and/or the guarantee of wildcards. Either way this would enable
Greg to raise his ranking to the level at which he was before the ATP brought the charges against him.
Bohdan Ulihrach is a player who faced identical charges which were also dropped - and who's case Greg
relied on for his own defence - and he has since been "assisted" by the ATP. So why are the two players being
treated differently? That's a fair question which deserves either a very good answer from the ATP or
the appropriate steps to assist the British No.2.
Speaking on Radio Five Live, Greg said:
"It's time for them to do something and give me help.
"I've been nothing but helpful in this situation and done what I can to help, so I'm really disheartened
and disappointed and I'd like to see more action finally taken."
