Odesnik is not that well liked, so he is easy to throw to the wolves. As ridiculous as his "tainted supplements" excuse is (and always has been), I wonder whether it would work with one of the top players like Nadal, Federer or Djokovic. Perhaps it already has and we didn't hear about it.
At least Cilic came up with a new twist on the old tainted supplement routine, having the audacity to blame it all on his mum. Odesnik lets the side down with his lame version.
Anyone who believes Odesnik's "tainted supplement" BS not only fell out of the stupid tree but hit all the branches on the way down. I'm glad he's gone, it should have happened the first time around when he was smuggling HGH.
