International Tennis Federation president Francesco Ricci Bitti told The Associated Press on Wednesday that despite appeals from the World Anti-Doping Agency, the statute of limitations in the case expired long ago and no retroactive punishment was possible.

 In another drug issue, Ricci Bitti is awaiting the outcome of appeals launched by Belgian players Yanina Wickmayer and Xavier Malisse, who were given one-year bans for violating WADA’s whereabouts rule.
The suspensions were lifted in December after the players appealed to a Belgian court, and both still have appeals pending with the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Wickmayer also has taken her case to the European Commission and the European Court for Human Rights.
“It’s a very important case because it could have consequences resulting in the revision of the WADA code,” said Ricci Bitti, who is also an International Olympic Committee member.
Wickmayer claims she was not properly informed of the online reporting requirements for drug-testing that led to her ban.
Under WADA rules, elite athletes must be available for out-of-competition testing for one hour a day, 365 days a year. They must give three months’ notice of where they will be so they can be tested.

Andre Agassi told ESPN.com he was “out of line” and apologized for poking fun at Pete Sampras during a charity match last week.

“It was inappropriate. The night was on fire. We were all having fun. I was trying to be comedic. I only had a split second to make a decision. I went for it and it fell flat. I was trying to get past it, but Pete didn’t really let me get past it. He didn’t really roll with it. I’ve texted Pete to ask him if I can apologize in person.”
“The joke fell flat and I’m sorry,” he added. “My hope was that the night was still enjoyable

Things Get Ugly Between Two Legends At Charity Event "Agassi/Sampras"

Roger Federer felt it had perhaps been a bad idea to have the four players miked up.
"I don't think it was that crazy bad, but it was a bit awkward because you didn't know. Was it just fun, was it not fun? What was it, you know?
"I thought maybe we have to give both guys like a timeout or something," Federer added with a smile. "We didn't have to go that far. They weren't that bad."

Nadal was asked about Sampras and Agassi after his Monday night match.
“Everybody told me after the match what’s happened, but during the match, you know how fast Americans speak, I didn’t understand nothing."

The evening was organised by venue owner Ellison, who got the idea from a similar match Roger Federer organised during the Australian Open in January.

Ellison, the billionaire software mogul and chief executive of Oracle, presented a check for $1 million to the American Red Cross Haiti relief and development fund after the match.
The Haiti earthquake of January 12 is thought to have killed up to 300,000 people and left a million homeless.

You never know who you will run into at the U.S. Open. Golfing great Greg Norman was with his two sons in the men’s locker room moments after a Roger Federer win on Ashe Stadium. After chatting with the world #1 and taking some photos, the two-time British Open champ (1986 & ‘93) shared a few thoughts on his appreciation for tennis:
Greg Norman’s introduction to tennis? ”Well, you’ve got Patrick Rafter, John Newcombe, Cashie, Ken Rosewall, I could go down the list. Rod Laver. All the great Australian players. Margaret Court. When you grow up in Australia and you look at all the other sports that have been played – and I follow cricket just as much as I follow tennis – this is the first time I’ve ever been to the U.S. Open. I was here for a meeting anyway, so I was fortunate enough to be able to come out and see it.”



Who are your favorite players to watch?
”It depends. I’m a huge Roger fan. I’m a huge Lleyton Hewitt fan. Because I just admire Lleyton’s determination and grit, he maximizes everything that he gets out there and puts his best foot forward every time, which is a rare talent indeed. And obviously Roger because of his grace and perfection of the game. Watching him hit a backhand is like standing there looking at the Mona Lisa all the time. It’s almost perfect. So, in sport, you always get these one every-one-thousand-year athletes – we’ve seen it in golf with Nicklaus and we’ve seen it in tennis with probably Roger Federer right now.
And if you have the opportunity to see him and what he can do – it’s totally different live than it is on TV. There’s no question about it. And seeing him more than once live – he’s just an incredible talent to see. In tennis, Lleyton is the most tenacious I’ve ever seen. There’s no quit in him. All the other players don’t have any quit in them but Lleyton’s sense of awareness of what he wants on the tennis court is just unique and I’ve got a huge respect for him.”
