Not worth the risk.
After having read tons and tons of books and info about doping in cycling, I am absolutely sure that, if planned, getting a BB into Australia entails very low to no risks at all.

I'm not saying the players would smuggle the BB in their personal suitcase, of course. But bear in mind blood isn't exactly what airport security is looking for.

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).
