well, that is the billion dollar question.
Personally, I dont doubt for a minute that a djokervic, federer, nadal, williams or sharapova would be protected by the powers that be.
For any of those players to be publically outed as a doper would be MASSIVE.
But as I said, its against WADA not to publish the alleged doper so, the issue really is, would WADA stand by on the sidelines and let the ITF get away with it.
