Subject: Federer likes the new drug program, although Rafa does not like it
Q. Could you talk a little bit about the drug program? Some players
have felt that the new system is a little too intrusive into their
personal lives.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, it's a tough system, no doubt. It's a
significant change to what we were used to before, so I think it takes
some time getting used to it, you know.

But at the same time, I feel like this is how you're going to catch
them, right? You're not going to catch them bringing them up and
saying, Look, I would like to test you maybe in two days. This is not
how you're going to catch the guys. The guy's cheating and they're
smart, right? That's why I'm kind of okay with it.

You know, it's an hour a day. I know it's a pain, but I would like it
to be a clean sport, and that's why I'm okay with it.

Where did I say any of that? links?

I posted exactly what Federer and Nadal said.

Probably it's the feeling of guilt. Nice!

Good to see you are back to insinuations that Nadal is taking drugs -
seems to me you don't have faith in Roger that can do the job
tonight...

Drug testing in tennis has been a joke for years - it's good to see
they are taking it seriously now. Federer seems to have no problem with
it and neither should any other player. If you don't like it get
another job.
