Call To Legalise Doping!

Post by noleisthebest on Thu Feb 05, 2015 10:14 pm

Some of you may have heard of Camilla Giorgi, a nice, attacking Italian player.

Her father and coach openly called for doping to get legalised....

"Doping in tennis exists. Some athletes have doctors who are able to cover them up, but it's easy to understand that it is there just looking at some WTA players' muscles or seeing the athletic capacity of some other players on the ATP tour. You see those things and you do understand that there is something going on. Controls are worthless. I also believe that athletes should be left the chance to dope if they want. I would obviously never allow Camila to do that, because doping can ruin your life and there is a lot more in life beside tennis. The sport is just a metaphor for life. In life there are those who cheat, it's like a jungle and you have to be ready to defend yourself".

Just as I posted earlier today...

"The ITF has released data on the 2014 tennis anti-doping program. Within the data is a detailed report of the number of times each player was tested.

It lists Roger Federer getting tested 7 plus times in events and another 7 plus times out of competition. The same for Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Rafael Nadal, who missed a lot of time with injury, was tested 4-6 times during events and another 7 plus times out of competition. Serena Williams was similar to Nadal.

By comparison, in 2013 Federer was tested 4-6 during events (7+ OOC). Djokovic was tested 4-6 OOC (7+ during events). Murray was tested 4-6 times in both at events and at home, so the Scot was tested at least two times more in 2014 vs 2013.

All the ATP’s Top 10 players were tested 7 plus times at home and at least 4 times at events.

A lower ranked player like David Goffin was tested 1-3 times during tournaments but was never tested at home.

Overall in 2014, there were 1883 random urine tests during events, just 300 random tests out of competition.

There were 207 random blood tests during events, 1139 randomly conducted out of competition."


...and what were the results of those tests like?

Yes true but like in life those who succeed are those who cheat. Politicians to start with. When tennis was a proper sport you would have proper talent at the top...
