The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Is Srichaphan the best Asian player ever?

Srichaphan is useless compared to Michael Chang so simple answer is no. So which player won a slam then?

Both qualifies as 'Asian' regardless of which country they're from.

Re: Is Srichaphan the best Asian player ever?

No-one sits in Chang's head but probably both USA and Asia were similarly important to him. Let's remember that he was a member of American team when they won Davis Cup in 1990 and World Team Cup in 1993. And it's a decisive factor considering his nationality. On the other hand I remember he used to emphasize that playing ATP tournaments in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Osaka, Jakarta, Shanghai, Singapore or Beijing he felt like playing at home (had tremendous support in these cities).
