Yeah but that's nothing new. It was reported few months ago that Errani worked with him.

She was asked about it yesterday.

NEW YORK -- U.S. Open semifinalist Sara Errani says she will stop working with Luis Garcia del Moral, a former member of Lance Armstrong's medical staff who recently was handed a lifetime ban by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Del Moral also worked with a handful of tennis players.

Last month, the International Tennis Federation said it would recognize the USADA ban. In an interview after her quarterfinal win Wednesday, Errani said the ITF told her she could go to del Moral if she wanted, but she said she would stop.

"Now, his name is not a good name," she said.

Del Moral was one of three members on Armstrong's medical staff handed lifetime suspensions, accused by USADA of participating in a doping conspiracy on Armstrong's teams during part or all of the cyclist's seven Tour de France victories.

^ That would be inquiring into the TennisVal Tennis Academy... would open up a bag of worms.

Why had they better ask this player or that player? They had better start serious testing, as that's the only fair way to deal with the issue without arbitrarily singling out names, or nationalities (the Spanish athletes seem to face a dis-proportionate amount of doping accusations, while nobody ever seems to accuse, for example, American athletes of doping). Look how long Lance Armstrong kept getting the benefit of the doubt.
