ABC report on juiced up kids in sports made me think of this

Does anyone else think that the reason that some parents choose not to have their tennis playing kids play any junior events is because that's when they were being juiced up--and still avoiding testing?

I never really understood the point of juicing up for tennis. It's not a really a "strength" sport. Hantuchova has tiny harms but she can still wack the ball (she's tall though).

Anyway, basically every player in the top 100 played juniors...

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.
