Serena Williams hits out again at drug testing ‘discrimination’ (Kwese.espn))

Serena Williams complained on social media that it’s “test Serena” time again, as she once more criticized the frequency with which she is selected for anti-doping tests.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion took to Twitter on Tuesday night after she received another visit from a tester.

Williams has complained before about being drug-tested more than other American tennis players this year.

“Just test everyone equally,” Williams said on the eve of this year’s Wimbledon, where she lost to Angelique Kerber in the final.

A report by Deadspin said Williams had been checked five times in 2018 by June, more than other U.S. women and men in the sport.
