Tennis Anti-Doping Tests: Serena Williams Feels ‘Discriminated’ 

Serena Williams has again hit out at the recurrence of being chosen for Anti-doping tests. The tennis professional voiced her opinion on social media after she got another visit from a doping tester.

The American tennis pro has won over 72 career titles so far. From Australian Open to the US Open, the player has won it all. She also remained at the top of women’s tennis rankings, until her first child’s birth resulted in her absence from tennis.

Williams made a comeback to the sport by being the runner-up in the recent Grand Slam tournament; Wimbledon 2018.

This was not the first time that Serena has addressed this issue on a public platform. As, at a press conference before Wimbledon, the tennis star revealed that a doping tester turned up for a random test, 12 hours earlier than the allotted time and refused to leave.

Statistics from the USA’s Anti-Doping Agency indicate that Serena has had more tests than any other player so far in 2018. When asked about this report, Williams said:

“I never knew that I was tested so much more than everyone else,” said the seven-time champion, who lost to German Angelique Kerber in the final.

“Until I read that article I didn’t realise it was such a discrepancy with me as well as against the other players that they listed, at least the American players – both male and female.”
