So people who assumed they were on drugs were extremely cynical?

Not to mention that Armstong, chinese swimmers, jones, etc got OOC tested FAR MORE OFTEN than current top tennis players. So we are not allowed to be cynical just because drug testing in tennis is very lax?
His tests from 1999 was examined in hindsight and showed proof of doping, but somehow the legal bit never managed to seal the deal. But your point is - of course - a valid one.
