erer defended the system and
asked for more doping tests yes-
Djokovic lashed out at the World
Anti-Doping Agency and at tennis
authorities this week, saying the
decision in Victor Troicki s case
proved the fight against doping

I was tested 25 times in 2003,
2004. Ever since, I think it s been
clearly going down this season."
