Hingis was angry about an unexpected control
Hingis also specified the controllers had not either respected Maria Sharapova who had placed the sign "not to disturb" on the door of her hotel room. What did not prevent the Russian from having to undergo a control.
The Swiss woman Martina Hingis was furious Monday to have had to undergo an unexpected control antidoping the day before, whereas she was training for the tournament of San Diego, her first tournament since Wimbledon. "I was tested again suddenly Sunday" declared old number 1 world. "I try to be professional. They should look at the program of the players. They arrive and upset all the day. They could come at the end of the day or the morning, but not to the middle of the day when you have a programmed training . There is not a great difference between the morning, the evening or the following day. It is not as if something were going to disappear." Hingis however admitted that controls were useful after the revelation of two new great scandals last week. But she estimates indignant certain methods like that which she underwent ten years ago while being awaked at it at 6 hours of the morning for a control. "If I want to sleep. I want to sleep. They should respect the athletes. I do not have any problem to undergo controls, but they could at least respect my private hours."
