Federer understands Serena's anti-doping frustrations

Andy Murray only recently made his comeback from a long injury lay-off

Roger Federer echoed Williams' call for consistent testing when he was asked about Serena's comments later on Sunday. I feel like even more so, I'm even more competitive.it definitely surprises me a little because I thought, you know, it would be different. If that's testing everyone five times, let's do it. I just wasn't quite used to that level of wind.

Seeded 25th at SW19, Serena was never on top form in the first-round encounter, but equally was never truly tested.

Williams, preparing for the start of Wimbledon on Monday, made it clear she didn't expect to have been tested so often this year.

The American produced the crucial break of serve from 5-5 in the opening set as Rus battled valiantly to stay in the contest.

"I actually thought the article was interesting".

Roger Federer debuts Uniqlo outfit at Wimbledon, 20-year Nike relationship collapses
As easy as the match was, it marked a landmark of sorts given it was Federer's first since the end of his sponsorship with Nike. Other top athletes who wear Uniqlo include Japan's Kei Nishikori, a former US Open finalist, and Australian golfer Adam Scott.


"You know, I'm here to do the best that I can do". To honest, in the 15 years, I've been there, it's been one test. No matter where I'm ranked. "It will be impossible for me not to feel some kind of way about that".

The fact that she postponed her press conference for 24 hours - it was supposed to be on Saturday - to go to a polo match with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may itself be a sign that she is relaxed ahead of the tournament.

The 36-year-old said she was tested five times on June, compared to one or none from some of her compatriots.

Deadspin reported the testing officer had arrived at Williams' home at 8.30 a.m. local time, and had refused to leave until Williams had been tested. The agency staffer reportedly left eventually without getting a sample from Williams, but Horn told the website that she nevertheless "is in good standing with our program".

The Williams siblings aren't playing doubles in this tournament, the way they did at Roland Garros, and that's a good thing for Mum: It gives her more time with her child.

1 dead, multiple injured in Bahamian boat explosion | Staff
A video shows black smoke billowing from the boat, which was engulfed in flames, as people swim to rescue those still on board. A woman is dead and nine others were injured after a boat exploded off the Exuma coast in the Bahamas Saturday morning.


The Deadspin article recounted a controversy in which Williams missed a recent drug test. Williams said Sunday that the tester showed up 12 hours earlier than the time they had agreed upon, and she wasn't able to get to the meeting in time. According to the USADA, three missed drug tests over the course of 12 months result in a doping violation. I expect to go out there.

"I guess they decided it was a missed test, which really doesn't make sense". In the village I live in in Switzerland, the tester lives in the same village, so it's very convenient.

At its peak, her game is as peerless as it is powerful: shotgun serve, thunderous groundstrokes, coupled with a methodical tennis mind and one of the most wrought-iron wills in world sport.

"I'll have to think about it next time. Maybe that's the part I don't like so much - the inconsistency of the places where they test", Federer said.
