The tennis pro tweeted she’s ‘getting tested the most’ for drugs.
She’s no dope.
Tennis star Serena Williams, fresh off an impressive run at Wimbledon, griped this week about her latest drug test — alleging “discrimination” over her frequent testing.
“…and it’s that time of the day to get “randomly” drug tested and only test Serena. Out of all the players it’s been proven I’m the one getting tested the most. Discrimination? I think so. At least I’ll be keeping the sport clean #StayPositive,” she tweeted Tuesday night. “But I’m ready to do whatever it takes to have a clean sport so bring it on. I’m excited.”
The 23-time Grand Slam champ has been tested five times in 2018, according to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s database — at more than twice the frequency of many other leading American women in tennis, as Deadspin pointed out last month, and more often than top American male players. For example, Sloane Stephens has been tested just once; Madison Keys has been tested twice; Williams’ sister, Venus Williams, has been tested twice; and CoCo Vandeweghe has been tested twice, per the database.
