Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal, who is in India to play the Davis Cup, said that he had faith in the stringent anti-doping programme of the tennis world, when queried about the revelation following the hacking of the WADA computer database, which led to revelations of players being allowed to use banned substances on the basis of TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption).
Earlier a Russian cyber-espionage group named 'Fancy Bears' brought out information detailing the TUEs Serena and Venus Williams and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles had received. The Williams sisters and Biles insisted that they did nothing wrong and have been backed by Wada and the tennis and gymnastics authorities.
"Sport should be clean, and look to be clean. We believe in the anti-doping policy we have. It is the best possible, and trying to be better and better. I know how hard the control is. We are available for testing one hour every single day of the year", said Nadal.
