someone should sue these drug gestapo groups and put them out of their misery...i for one dont care who is doping or nor, in other words its should be a persons right to ingest whatever they want whenever...in other words doping is not so bad as its made out...if you WILLINGLY want to risk your life taking drugs, everyone should respect that....i also dont see it as cheating...and i also dont believe the deterent claim cause the people who know what they are doing are decades ahead of the testers...not testing positive doesnt mean you are clean it means you can fool the tests...look at how far ahead BALCO was in relation to the testers...they had stuff the testers never even dreamed of....doping has been going on as long as there has been competition and evidence has surfaced that olympians at the turn of the century were doping as well...and i blame the atp and wta for not showing any courage and letting the drug fools run their tours and banning the players for no good reason (yes, doping is not a good reason to get banned) if you play the match fairly using legal raquets/clothing etc and you win, then that result should be final...and to those who use the cheating argument, then i propose this: you should make it mandatory fof the doper to admit what he/she took and give the opponent an option to match or beat that drug, or do nothing at all. and no, i also dont buy the protect the athlete from himself justification either, the tours should not be a babysitter, not the drug test clowns..
