Interesting article fom 2014 regarding ATP/WTA drug testing


Says that Nadal and other top ranked players were tested at least 11 times that year. With that level of scrutiny I would be surprised if he would risk his entire legacy by taking PED's.

Tennis has become an older man's game (another reason why college tennis has become a more viable option for so many high level juniors). Nadal and Fed have both won majors into their mid 30's. They obviously take advantage of the latest training techniques but interestingly enough both have taken extended layoffs in recent years. I've heard some analysts argue that these extended breaks have helped both men play championship tennis well into their 30s. The top level guys also play fewer tourneys than players from prior generations. It will be interesting to see how long Nadal and Fed can go.
