Tennis superstar Serena Williams believes that she is being unfairly singled out for drug testing. A few days after making it to the Wimbledon finals, Serena vented on Twitter that she has been drug tested more than all of the other tennis players and she believes that it's discrimination. Just before Wimbledon, it was reported that Williams is in fact tested more than anyone else.
Serena spoke the day before Wimbledon began about how often she is drug tested in response to a Deadspin article – which reported she had been drug tested more than any other player this year. She stated,
"I never knew that I was tested so much more than everyone else. It will be impossible for me not to feel some kind of way about that."
Check out her tweets below:
...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— Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) July 25, 2018
But I’m ready to do whatever it takes to have a clean sport so bring it on. I’m excited.— Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) July 25, 2018
