I just don't see how you can say Rafa uses PED's while Fed who has never retired from a match, or missed any slams in his career doesn't...
I'm a Federer fan, but I agree entirely with this point. Ralph is suspected due to his physique but mostly due to his playing style. It's unlikely he would want to bulk up, for that won't help him. However, endurance is the matter concerned. At this stage, everyone comes into the discussion.

I'm not trying to say Federer is guilty, but that the endurance aspect of his game works against him in such discussions.

The only top players i would be amazed if they were using would be delpotro and berdych. The fact that federer is never out of breath is suspicious but i dont think he would.
Who would stand to lose more if they were caught? And by caught I'm *implying that the facts were made public for the sake of this conversation. Who? Federer. Now, with all those sponsoring him, and the millions he's worth, do you not think research was done by those companies involved? How much damage could be done to them if Federer was found to be guilty?

BUT, *, I don't believe that if some of the bigger names were caught that the findings would be made public.
