I tend to agree with you. It's pointless and counter-productive making accusations against individuals when we don't really know, unless of course they've confessed to cheating like Agassi. What we can though come back on is inaccurate or distorted statements that players or federations make. The head of the ITF's remarks that tennis being a technical, skill-based sport and therefore inherently less susceptible to doping, being one such howler. We can also point out circumstances that give rise to suspicion. There are any number of general pointers that indicate that doping is going on everywhere so why should pockets of it at least, not be happening in a rich sport like tennis when we know it's already occurred in the past?
