When asked why blood few out-of-competition blood tests are conducted, Miller begins his response with:
"There are things I can tell you and things I can’t tell you. I will tell you that there were certain constraints about blood testing under the programme previously..."Miller refuses to be more specific about the "constraints." What is he talking about? They couldn't be financial constraints since the anti-doping budget has come in under budget for three consecutive years. And it does not explain why blood testing decreased between 2006 and 2011.
And here's some samples from his response on whether the WADA goal of making blood tests 10 percent of total testing is high enough:
...There are also more prohibited substances that can be detected in urine samples than there are in blood samples. One might, therefore, suggest there is more value for urine samples than there is in blood sampling...
...Is 10 percent enough? That’s not for me to decide...More verbiage. No insight. Dr. Miller is the anti-doping manager for tennis. It is his job to decide how much blood testing is required for tennis. If he thinks his job to is merely meet minimum WADA requirements, he should resign.
I would quote more from the interview, but it would just make me upset.
Once again, kudos to Simon Cambers for asking tough questions.
