    Nole will never win another GS unyil he gets his breathing problems addressed. It was wierd, seeing how happy he looked after losing, while Murray looked like he was about to cry!

      I tend to agree. It is a challenge he doesn’t need, medication is limited for a professional athlete, so he’s between a rock and a hard place in many ways, it’s very unfortunate. Nole clearly has a problem, no question, exercise induced asthma has been suggested, but what I find odd, it doesn’t happen all the time when he exerts himself, why? There surely must be a combination of triggers. I wonder, does he have breathing problems when he hard trains?

      Apparently Volandri has asthma. Source: Wiki

      “In January 2009 Volandri received a 3-month ban from the ATP for a doping offence after testing positive for salbutamol during on March 13, 2008 at the Indian Wells tournament[2]. Volandri did have a medical exemption from the International Tennis Federation to use salbutamol, an asthma medication, but the ITF deemed that his use of the drug was beyond therapeutic needs. His suspension was to last through April 14, 2009 and required him to forfeit all prize money and ranking points earned from the date of the failed test until the beginning of his suspension.[3]

      In March 2009 the Court of Arbitration for Sport overruled the ATP decision and ruled that Volandri should be reinstated and his forfeited ranking points and earnings returned to him. Volandri stated that he intends to sue the ATP over the incident.[4]”
