Richard Gasquet can return to the ATP Tour following the ITF's decision on his anti-doping case.
The Frenchie could have faced a possible two-year ban from professional tennis after he was found with cocaine in his system in Miami. But during his tribunal the former prodigy claimed he received the banned substance through a contaminated drink or kiss from a woman named "Pamela" during visits to a couple of Miami clubs (the last one being a strip club - no surprise there.) He was in town, of course, to participate in the Sony Ericsson Open but withdrew before his scheduled match due to his recurring shoulder injury.
The Tribunal decided that if he knowingly used cocaine the amount found in his system would've been of a greater amount.
He was sentenced to two months and 15 days to begin on May 1, 2009 and ending today, July 15, 2009.
You can read the lengthy decision over at the ITF website.
Uh, I'm really happy Reeshard will be returning to the Tour. Maybe this is the kick in the ass he needs to get himself together finally. But does anyone REALLY believe he was kissing a girl? I'll take the dirty drink plea over that one any day.
Ya fooled 'em, Reeshard. Ya fooled 'em good.
