Murray's comments on the new anti-doping regulations- similar reaction as Nadal

Mods, I had to open a new thread because the other one was closed Please feel free to move this if necessary.

Quote:
ANDY MURRAY is leading a revolt over a new anti-doping blitz to crack down on tennis cheats.

Under the new rules, athletes must report where they are for one hour of each day for the whole year so that investigators can call at any time, unannounced.

Anyone who misses three tests in an 18-month period could be suspended for up to two years.

But world No.4 Murray blasted the measures after an official wakened him at dawn in his London home to carry out a test - just hours after the jet-lagged star had flown 10,000 miles from Australia.

The 21-year-old Scot raged: "I got a visit at 7am at my home right after I had travelled home from Australia. I woke up not knowing where I was and suffering badly from jet lag.

"It seemed ridiculous to me as I'd been tested just four days earlier, straight after the match I had lost in the Australian Open.

"The official who came to my home wanted me to produce identification to prove who I was.

"He insisted on watching me provide a sample, literally with my trousers round my ankles.

"And then he insisted that I wrote down my own address, even though he was at my private home at 7am."

Players jeered representatives of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) when the measures were announced at a stormy meeting in Melbourne last month.

One player walked out and others questioned ITF officials on the mandatory requirement of the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada).

World No.1 Rafael Nadal revealed that he has also had an early-morning visit from testers and said: "There is a unanimous voice in the locker-room. It is an intolerable hunt."

Completely agree with both Andy and Rafa here - this really is a bit much. To have to report your precise location everyday for an entire year - ludicrous.

I guess Murray is doping too, right?

Both of them are spot on about this

This is not a sport plagued by doping, like others are. Puerta has been the major case, so no need to go beyond basic privacy rights with this. Nadal was tested about 20 times in 2008 I think.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

One question, are NBA players, or american footballers tested with this procedure too?

Re: Murray's comments on the new anti-doping regulations- similar reaction as Nadal

I was thinking how many people must have to be employed to uphold such stringent laws for every player on the ATP tour. Thats a hell of a lot of players.

How have they got time to test Nadal more than twice in a season, never mind 20!?

I agree, all a bit extreme if you ask me...

Murray behaves like a twat... amazing.

Shut the hell up and pee in the freaking cup, it's no big deal.

Fixed it for you.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

This nonsense must stop, they all should just agree on pulling a JMG and piss on the fucken inspector's face.

I can see some MTFers rushing to apply for the job.
