The bible or whatever other holy text that certain someone lives by would strictly forbid her to get some blood transfusions of her own blood enhanced with her own red blood cells that was harvested from her own body a few days, weeks or months earlier?

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
That wasn't the OP.....

The thread cannot develop w/o disclosing that.

At least you can lay out the situation/scenario w/o disclosing a name
Not the jeannie

Dog, I was joking, totally forgot about Venus being a JW.

But in all seriousness, I do believe JW are able to get transfusions of their own blood... or that some are ok with that.... Now we can turn the conversation away from religion because they all have beliefs that some others don't agree with.

Re: Are tennis players allowed to take blood transfusions before matches?

So basically you accuse a player of blood doping but refuse to back up your accusations in any way? If you just wanted it to be a general question you could have denied that you were asking the question because of a particular player.

Re: Are tennis players allowed to take blood transfusions before matches?

Do tennis player have blood passports? if they have , blood doping won't be useful. Really i don't think that they have, because in sports where WADA is taking care of it a number of sportsmen are DQ for five days or not allowed to take part in particular start (skiing, cycling) just because theier blood test sho anomaly Of course this anomaly can be natural , therefore these sportsmen are just suspended for a while

Exactly, I made that very point as well.

But Makarovafan did not understand
