Serena Williams Calls Out Anti-Doping Agency For Discrimination After ‘Random’ Drug Test

By Posted on 0 2 m read

Serena Williams recently took to Twitter to call out the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after being drug tested more than any other female American tennis player.

Serena Williams gave birth to her daughter less than a year ago and was able to advance all the way to the Wimbledon finals before being defeated by Angelique Kerber. While we call that physical achievement and gifted, the USADA still found it necessary to “randomly” drug test Serena for the sixth time this year and as you can imagine, she was not happy about it.

“…and it’s that time of the day to get “randomly” drug tested and only test Serena,” she tweeted. “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.”

According to the USADA’s database, no other female American tennis player has been tested more than twice this year. However, records show that as of July 20, Serena Williams had already been tested five times, which makes her most recent drug test number six.

Despite her claims of discrimination, Serena says she’s “ready to do whatever it takes to have a clean sport.”
