Mustard, Muster was definitely tough there for a while, especially on Clay. Being a lefty was also an advantage he had. He was strong and could seemingly go forever on clay.

What exactly happened to him and the failed drug test? I'm asking, because I don't recall the exact details, but wasn't it a "blood doping" situation? Was there some possible innocent explanation at all, or is the consensus now that he gained a significant competitive advantage unfairly? Perhaps there were lots of players at that time doing the same thing in hindsight, given what we know now in sports such as Baseball and even Tennis. Thanks in advance.
