Multiple drug tests: Serena Williams alleges ‘discrimination’

Williams expressed her opinion Tuesday after receiving another unannounced visit to test for performance-improving substances.

Serena Williams has accused anti-doping authorities of "discrimination" because of the frequency with which she has been selected for random drug tests.

The mother-of-one, who recently return to the tennis tour at the Wimbledon Open in June where she lost the final to Germany's Angelique Kerber, has been reportedly tested more than any other player on the tour. Discrimination? I think so.

It also claimed the player was not present when Usada officials visited her home on 14 June - Williams stated that the tester showed up 12 hours earlier than the agreed time.

"Until I read that article I didn't realise it was such a discrepancy with me as well as against the other players that they listed, at least the American players - both male and female".

A report by Deadspin said Williams had been checked five times in 2018 by June, more than other US women and men in the sport.

A spokeswoman for Williams called the frequent drug testing "invasive" and "targeted" treatment.

The 23-time grand slam victor had previously described her treatment by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) as shocking and raised questions about the number of times she had been tested this year. She gave birth to a daughter last September.

Following her Wimbledon loss, Williams said she had proven to herself that she could still compete to win Grand Slams.
