Nadal complains about new Drug Testing regime

February 12, 2009

Doping

Spaniard, Rafael Nadal, seems to be leading criticism against the procedure adopted by the ATP Tennis Tour, which signed the World Anti-Doping agency (WADA) protocol last year.

“It is not fair to have persecution like that,” Nadal said at the World Indoor Tournament in Rotterdam, “They make you feel like a criminal. Not even my mother knows where I am every day. It is very difficult to know where you are going to be tomorrow especially in a sport like tennis. Sure we want to be an Olympic sport, but I think we don’t want to pay a price like this for an Olympic sport,”
