I'm dubious about the benefits anyway. I doubt bloods values drop during a tennis tournament to the extent a bb would be really beneficial.
I used to think that some 4-5 years ago. Then I started reading and... my jaw dropped. Especially in slams a timed transfusion can do wonders.

EPO would probably be more efficient though. Too bad EPO tests are virtually non-existent in tennis.

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).
