Now seriously, I feel myself identified with my favourite player out there, STAN the MAN. My biggest shot is my one handed backhand, especially DTL. My first serve isn't too fast but accurate and reliable enough to give me a good first groundstroke (yup, grown on clay). My forehand is decent except the one DTL, which sucks invariably. I guess clay has given me the natural good defence it gives to everyone which helps while you have fuel to go on, cause I'm not very fit these days (see? just like Stan ).

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

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).
