I'm leaning toward that suspicion, not just for tennis but for pro sport in general. It's all a matter of not getting caught. And it doesn't mean the pro athletes don't have the talent. But let's face it, in pro sport, they have to bring their best effort on a consistent basis, push their limits nonstop (more and more so) and recover ASAP when there is a problem. Tough ask.
This being said, in this ultra technological day and age, it's hard to believe a silent ban could be pulled off. Somewhere, some time, someone would manage to leak something. It seems inevitable.
