That wasn't the OP.....
You would be right if the the thread author had not voluntarily said there is player
, but s/he does not want to mention any name.
why the questions?
Any background or back story?
If s/he truly just wanted to "discuss blood doping and how it would apply to tennis given the existing regulatory atmosphere in the tennis circuits
" as you stated, s/he could simply have said that
But writing "There is, but I don't want to drag the name of a particular player into it."
takes the thread into a speculative direction, whether s/he intended it or not
Are tennis players allowed to take blood transfusions before matches?
If so, is this a technique that could be beneficial to a player's short term fitness? And if not, how would the WTA, ITF or whoever actually check to make sure players aren't doing it?
