Irish sports journalist Ewan MacKenna has something interesting to say about doping and tennis. A couple of excerpts:
"...The reality is this is a cosy little club where media get access and everyone else gets rich. As one prominent tennis writer says, “For some reason most tennis journalists don’t want to know about drugs in their game”."Indeed.
"...Tennis players have the same motives of wealth and fame and the same opportunities through a weak testing regime, so to think they’ve fortified morals because they’re likeable is to be blind."
"...do you believe doctors doped athletes in other sports but not their tennis clientele?"
"...Does quantity equal quality, why no figures to show if testing has switched to winner-targeted, where are key statistics once readily available? For all the talk, we aren’t allowed see the walk."
