Gasquet Allowed to Return to Play After Getting Caught up in Coke Charges

Tennis player Richard Gasquet tested positive for cocaine during the Miami Masters in March. This also happened to be the same time WMC was in town, and Gasquest blamed the results on hanging out with French pop-house DJ Bob Sinclar's entourage at Set. The coke must have accidently wound up in his drink somehow, apparently. 

Well, the International Tennis Federation believed his story and lifted Gasquet's suspension. Meaning, at least one international sports federation believes there's so much cocaine going around during WMC that it's totally possible for an innocent athlete to get a bit in his system without actually trying to.
