AFLD wants to "advance" on tennis
Usually shut down from the anti-doping procedures put in place at the Grand Slams, which includes Roland-Garros, AFLD wishes to be more present on the ATP and WTA tour events played in France. "Regarding the Grand Slams, the ITF wants to have a monopoly" explained Bruno Genevois, director of the agency. "But we want to advance on other tournaments. For starters, we expect some progress regarding the Bercy tournament."
Ask yourself: Why is the ITF resisting the AFLD's request? Why does the ITF want a monopoly on testing at Grand Slam events? Was the ITF unhappy about the supplementary testing the AFLD conducted at Roland Garros in 2009?
