Drug cheats cannot escape detection: Bartoli

World number 10 Marion Bartoli does not think drug cheats in tennis can escape detection as players are subjected to too many dope tests in and out of competition. Her observations were at odds with comments made by players such as Roger Federer, who following the Lance Armstrong doping scandal has called for more tests in tennis. “I feel I’m being less tested this time now than six, seven, eight years ago,” the Swiss 17-times grand slam champion said recently. Frenchwoman Bartoli disagreed. “I feel like we have too many drugs tests in tennis. I get tested 35-40 times every year,” Bartoli told a news conference at the Paris Open. “From my point of view, it’s impossible (for cheats) not to get caught these days.”
