I don't think so. Even though he's #1 at the moment, don't think he can exert much of an influence, don't think even someone like Federer could change things single-handedly, and could probably just damage himself and/or make the tournament look bad. Remember that place wasn't some anti-drug panel, it was just a regular post-match interview, and they almost ignored the match.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
