Many of these are actually done at tournament sites also, so are totally superfluous as nobody would be using catchable substances at those times.

3) On top of that, what little OOC testing is performed is badly flawed - no EPO tests, and urine only, not blood or hair.

4) No test for HGH is performed in or out of competition.

5) EPO only tested for at 3 events a year.

6) The ATP has covered up things even when players are caught, as with Agassi and the dozens of "supplements" players.



It's thus inevitable lots of top players are juicing ..... and looking at the physiques of some, it's very obvious they are (especially the women, many of whom put East German swimming teams to shame).
This and anyone knows the testing is a joke.
