The ITF has released data on the 2014 tennis anti-doping program. Within the data is a detailed report of the number of times each player was tested.
It lists Roger Federer getting tested 7 plus times in events and another 7 plus times out of competition. The same for Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.
Rafael Nadal, who missed a lot of time with injury, was tested 4-6 times during events and another 7 plus times out of competition. Serena Williams was similar to Nadal.
By comparison, in 2013 Federer was tested 4-6 during events (7+ OOC). Djokovic was tested 4-6 OOC (7+ during events). Murray was tested 4-6 times in both at events and at home, so the Scot was tested at least two times more in 2014 vs 2013.
All the ATP’s Top 10 players were tested 7 plus times at home and at least 4 times at events.
A lower ranked player like David Goffin was tested 1-3 times during tournaments but was never tested at home.
Overall in 2014, there were 1883 random urine tests during events, just 300 random tests out of competition.
There were 207 random blood tests during events, 1139 randomly conducted out of competition.
