I mean Boris Becker was a self-confessed rabid pill popper and a bit of a coke head... how'd he get by the controls?
Its all pretty sketchy and the ATP should be made to answer for some of these accusations and make the process more transparent.
I also think there should be transparency in the testing process so that the players can have faith in the system. It should be an independent organization from the ATP. And all the tests should be blind.
