Wow. How does this work? Your racket fails Racket Control, you will, of course, not be allowed to use the racket on that day (I assume you'd be allowed to submit a second one), but not only that, your name gets added to this list.. and then what? Do they keep holding it against you somehow until the "Expiry Date"?? What's the Expiry Date for anyhow?

Surprising that people are getting caught for VOC - most seem to date back to 2011-2013, but there's at least one from as late as August 2014. Thickness seems to be the most "popular" infraction (one wonders how that came to be the case - boosting, or poor quality control, or over-thick gluing), but there's also flatness (Chtchetinine!), glossiness and even damaged rubber. One was "not in LARC", and there are a couple of cryptic "illegal racket".

What is NOT mentioned is blade and rubber brand and type (I'd love to know what rubber was too glossy).

I'm surprised the list is so short - I'd have expected 20-30 pages full over 5 years, considering how many tournaments there are every year (I assume these are for Pro-level tournaments). Which would mean violations are very far and few between. Very few, if any, "name brand" players in that list.

Interesting to see William Henzell with a VOC infraction back in 2012. And yes I wonder what the expiry date means too. There was 4 years on WH's infraction...does it mean he gets more rigorous testing in this time perhaps?

I didn't spot that.... but of course we all know that it does not mean he's guilty of anything, as false alarms were rife, especially in those days.
