Serena Williams slams authorities for excessive drug tests claims discrimination

Serena Williams makes 'discrimination' claim after drug test, tennis news, tweet

After Serena Williams complained about the frequency of anti-doping tests, comments have flooded social media with some internet users even suggesting that doping officers are trying to steal the prominent United States tennis player's DNA.

"It's because she worn [sic] a grand slam while pregnant and made it to a grand slam final 10 months after having a hard delivery".

Deadspin reported that the five times Williams had been tested before her Tuesday tweets didn't include another attempt in June, when a doping control officer went to Williams' home while she wasn't there.

"'...and it's that time of the day to get "randomly" drug tested and only test Serena," she posted sarcastically.

"As a black woman, do you think she's getting discriminated against? YES".

However, she also claimed that, in order to keep the sport clean, she'll do everything she can. "It's one of the few articles I read", Williams said at the All England Club.

The seven-times Wimbledon champion and 23-times Grand Slam champ in two tweets today said she was being tested the most of all female tennis players.

Following a complaint with regards to repeated testing, Williams appears to be claiming, with proof attached, that she is being singled out and tested at a far higher rate than her counterparts. The top 20 players have been tested a combined six times, the same amount of times as Williams. She had already been tested five times since before she headed to Wimbledon.

"It would be impossible for me to not feel some kind of way about that", she added.

"It's just about being equal and not centring one person out". Williams was asked about the findings of the report during Wimbledon earlier this summer. "I was just like: "That's just weird". I didn't know I was tested so much more than everyone else.

Williams, 36 and showing no signs of decline after reaching the Wimbledon final, has been given a wild card to compete in next month's Rogers Cup in Montreal ahead of the US Open.
