Andy Murray wants tennis to do more in battle against doping cheats
The world number two has called on the sport to commit more resources to anti-doping measures.
Andy Murray wants tennis to commit more resources to combating doping in the sport in light of the scandal which has recently embroiled athletics.
The British number one has been a long-time advocate of increased anti-doping measures in tennis and is concerned about whether the sport is doing enough to stop cheats.
Earlier this week the world anti-doping agency (WADA) released a detailed report into what it claims is evidence of widespread cheating across Russian athletics.
Reacting to the news and the possible consequences for his own sport, Murray told the Daily Mail : "I follow that stuff all the time.
"What has happened with Russia is really bad, but I don't think it's just a Russia problem or just an athletics problem.
"It's up to the governing bodies just how much they want to tackle it because with the amount of money and profit sport actually makes, there needs to be enough spent on anti doping."
Ahead of the ATP World Tour Finals in London Murray highlighted the imbalance between the prize money on offer in tennis and the amount spent on anti-doping protocol.
"This year it feels like I've been tested more thanAndy Murray, Daily Mail November 13, 2015
I've ever been, which is good."
"I don't know what is enough and I don't know what other sports do," he added, "but in tennis we should be doing as much as we can."
American player Wayne Odesnik was given a 15-year ban from the sport for doping earlier this year, with Serbian Viktor Troicki also handed a 12-month ban in 2013 for refusing to give a blood sample.
The world number two still believes that tennis could be doing more to combat the threat of drugs cheats, though.
"You want to make sure that it is done properly and even if someone is a big name or their country is very wealthy, their name should come out and they get punished properly," he said.
"I'm all for more drug testing, the more the better. This year it feels like I've been tested more than I've ever been, which is good. It's probably more than 20 times and less than 30."
