My fav Ashe match was the 75 Wimby final. It was like Ali-Fraizer, and NO body gave Authur a chance. You know the rest, it was awesome. And as you saw on my list, both of these guys were among my favs, but I really wanted Authur to pull it off.
That is unbelievable. I respect so much the famous people who behave like that, it tells so much about them. It's a pity what happened to Ashe. So young...

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).
