"Quantity doesn't mean quality. The program in anti-doping has to be very focused and I'm proud to say the tennis program is one of the best,'' he [Ricci Bitti] said, adding that ''there could be a little bit more'' testing.
The ITF has the right to retest samples for a period of eight years. This has been used in other Olympic sports in the past to catch drug cheats from past years using modern technology, but Ricci Bitti said the ITF very rarely used its right to reopen samples.
"We retain all our testing and we can retest,'' he said. ''I believe in sports like the Olympics, this has some value because it's one competition every four years, but we test the players continuously, so it's not so important."I can only assume that this means that the ITF doesn't consider it necessary to retest samples related to players that have been linked to Dr. Fuentes, or Dr. del Moral, or the Biogenesis clinic.
Do we need any further evidence that the tennis anti-doping program lacks competent leadership?
