My reading of the ITF's recommendation to the WADA on this item is that the ITF wants to make it more difficult for a national anti-doping body to test at an international federation event by giving an event's ruling body the opportunity of conducting the requested additional testing itself and by requiring "express permission" from the IF (or WADA). Why is the ITF against co-operating with other anti-doping organizations? Why do they want to stop other agencies from testing at their events?
Oh wait, I know why: The ITF doesn't like unpredictable testing. They want to protect their product. It's clear that the ITF is in a conflict of interest when it comes to doping control. It is clear that the AFLD is seeking to conduct a test distribution that does not overlap with the ITF's weak testing. Indeed, the fact is that other national federations (UKAD, ASADA, and the USADA) should be joining the AFLD in requesting the ability to test at tennis events.
The ITF (i.e., Stuart Miller and Francesco Ritti Bitti) needs to stop embarrassing itself and strike an agreement with the AFLD for additional testing. Alternatively, given the ITF's position, the AFLD can (and should) seek approval from the WADA to conduct additional testing. They can make a strong case for their request by simply showing the WADA the ITF's testing plan and pointing out the ineptness of the ITF's plan.
