    Agree with that totally.
    Although on the other hand, saying sorry is easy, meaning it and atonement are another thing.

    Having read your post again maybe I didn't explain very well the bit you put in bold.
    When I said "It's Dan's stance that matters, I meant will it happen again?

    But do I remember right that in his interview shortly after the ban he said "It wasn't a case of it being a PED as though it was different"
    Please correct me if I got it wrong.

    Re: Dan Evans

    He has shown "genuine commitment to getting his tennis career back on track", said the LTA.

    Under the terms of his suspension, the former world number 41 was allowed to access LTA facilities and support again from last Saturday.

    On Wednesday, he met the LTA's performance director Simon Timson and Britain's Davis Cup captain Leon Smith.

    "The LTA condemns any form of doping, which has no place in our sport," added the governing body of British tennis.

    "Dan has reflected on his experience over the last 10 months, and would like to support the LTA's anti-doping education programme to help emerging young players avoid similar mistakes.

    "We have offered a structured programme of sports science and medicine support to help Dan on his journey back into the sport he loves.

    "Our support will be entirely dependent on a non-negotiable commitment to ongoing monitoring."

    Dan?
    I'm sure while you're under the LTA spot light you'll be fine but if you want this to be permanent my advise would be hold your own spot light and keep it fully on.


    Lets keep our fingers crossed that it's for real and for good.

    Eh?

    jagmad ... you have said it all before, made yourself abundantly clear, we all know how you feel. Give it a rest now eh?

    Welcome back Evo! I have really missed watching him play. It is going to be exceptionally hard for him to get back to anywhere near where he was before, but he clawed his way back from 700 odd in the world before to make top 100 so you never know.

    Thanks, I realise now I should have been less lazy and just looked it up! Sorry folks. Oh well good luck to him, I hope people don’t judge him too much if it doesn’t go well, it is worth bearing in mind that ther will be rustiness from a lack of match play which could mean a less than great performance. Rustiness is not a sign of not training enough, live matches that aren’t practices are what’s needed to fix it.
