Doping tests frequency in 2004-2005

On MTF there is thread about Nadal who complains of how he's being treated like criminal by anti-doping services. And one of the posters gave this link:
http://www.itftennis.com/antidoping/news/statistics.asp
which contains info about who, where and how often was tested by ITF in 2004 and 2005.

"Leaders" amongst tested WTA players during that period:

Kuznetsova - 26 (Urine - 11 in 2004, 10 in 2005; Blood - 3 in 2004, 2 in 2005)
Dechy - 23 (8, 11; 1, 3)
Mauresmo - 22 (6, 10; 3, 3)
Schnyder - 22 (8, 10; 2, 2)
Davenport - 20 (6, 8; 2, 4)
Dementieva - 20 (8, 10; 1, 1)
Likhovtseva - 20 (9, 6; 3, 2)
Myskina - 20 (11, 6; 1, 2)
Petrova - 20 (8, 8; 1, 3)
Suarez - 17 (10, 2; 4, 1)
Sharapova - 16 (5, 5; 2, 4)
S.Williams - 16 (8, 4; 3, 1)
Pierce - 15 (3, 9; 0, 3)
Ruano Pascual - 15 (10, 5; 0, 0)
Zvonareva - 15 (6, 7; 1, 1)

And it's only on-court (on-tournament) tests.

Re: Doping tests frequency in 2004-2005

I can understand why Lindsay is up so high, as she was the world #1 for most of that period, but wtf is Dechy doing so high?

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Doping tests frequency in 2004-2005

Dechy was a semifinalist at 2005 AO so it's the reason...

Re: Doping tests frequency in 2004-2005

I didn't know they release stats on how often players have to give samples

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Doping tests frequency in 2004-2005

Dechy makes sense, she would have been an ok guess for something up... Kuznetsova also, I suppose such a huge shock of winning the USO (she's also very strong, so...)

Interesting stats, thanks

I was surprised about Dechy, until I saw the posts about her making the AO semis, I had totally forgotten about that But mostly the numbers aren't really surprising
