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.

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? :confused:

Suddenly reaching the AO SF, Dechy wold be 1st on my list to be tested.

Thanks for posting this, I was wondering where this was recently.

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

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 :lol: But mostly the numbers aren't really surprising

I'd like to see where the samples have been taken. I think the fact that certain players are tested more may also have to do with what tournaments they play and where.

Still, overal, the players certainly shouldn't complain because they really aren't tested all that much. It's still a joke compared to other sports.
