Bartoli: No doping in tennis

French world number 10 Marion Bartoli believes that dopers won't go undetected in tennis because players are subjected to lots of drug tests.

Her comments are in stark contrast to several other players - including Roger Federer, who recently said that the Lance Armstrong scandal should prompt tennis to have more testing done.

"I feel I'm being less tested this time now than six, seven, eight years ago," the Swiss 17-times Grand Slam champion said recently.

However, Bartoli disagreed with the 31-year-old Federer.

"I feel like we have too many drugs tests in tennis. I get tested 35-40 times every year," Bartoli told a news conference at the Paris Open.

"From my point of view, it's impossible (for cheats) not to get caught these days.

"Maybe Lance Armstrong was tested a lot and never failed a test but I just don't know how that is possible," added Bartoli.
