About the doping post

You have to be a moron to believe Venus or Serena are using banned substances..they have been very fit and superior athletes all their lives...there have never been any drastic changes in their physiques or performance levels

If there is any truth to this rumor and i doubt it...we all know who the top 5 player is that used chemicals to revive her career...what player lost in the second round of the 2000 USA, then showed up in Australia 4 months later, having lost 40 lbs of fat while growing bulging biceps and triceps overnight..

Venus and Serena have been tested many times, including the 2000 Olympics and have never failed a test...If it was a Williams and the test was done in Paris...any moron should realize the crap would have hit the fan long ago...the major media outlets would have had the story the day after the test results were confirmed

Will you slimeballs please give me a break and leave the sisters alone...They are the best because they have worked very hard all their lives to hone their skills...they don't cheat and have no need to

Can a non- tennis playing person with the aide of dope
suddenly become a tennis champion?

Well.. Who would have thought Korda took performance enchancing drugs... He denied it. But...
Looks can be deceiving...
Whether your ranked number 1 or number 999... anybody is a suspect.

who ever it is, I hope it will not be put in the deafpot

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Why are you so outraged that they accuse the Williams sisters only to turn around and accuse someone else? Serena Williams is the best tennis player out there right now. I don't think anyone would deny that fact and Venus is not far behind her.

As far as Jennifer Capriati she is one of the most naturally talented athletes competing. She lays her heart out in ALMOST every match she plays. Unfortunatley she does not have the mental toughness of a Williams, Seles, Graff, Evert ect that allows her to dominate the sport in quite the same way.

I do not agree with all of her actions but I am almost always guaranteed a match to remember.

Enjoy Serena and Venus success but don't put down another athlete to do so.

AmonRa777 is right, we shouldn't jump to idiot conclusions and make accusations on the basis of a rumor and a pile of inuendo.

AmonRa777 should also take his/her own advice.

TPTB need to address this before the rumors get out of hand, but until they do we need to keep our biases in check.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
