this is the state of tennis in regards to doping. without sufficient transparency from the top down, there is only speculation to base the answers on when the questions are brought up. the questions will probably always be there. the only way to save players from unfair speculation is to have a change in the system, not the players, in the way testing is handled and the way results are provided. sadly as the article says, like it has happened in other sports, this change likely wont come until a retired Mark Mcguire type player folds. if that came about, the ATP/WTA & ITF are going to be in a lot more trouble than they would have been in the outset.
Howard Bryant is fabulous on tennis. I recommend reading whatever it is he is writing.
