Rafael Nadal wants to clear the doping issue:  "It’s a real problem in sport that strongly damages the image of sport," said the Majorcan, "but pay attention not to put everybody in the same bracket”.

The Spaniard continued: “Cases like the one of Armstrong or the one of Operation Puerto are the cancer of sport, but you have to fight with all the strength you have, to grant transparency, make the tests public and collaborate.

He then took a shot at Roger FEderer:  "Once Federer came out saying that controls are too little. It’s not the time to discuss the controls. It’s the moment to cooperate all together and make public the controls that we all do weekly.”

For his part, Federer also spoke about the Armstrong case: “His behaviour was really horrible not only for him but also for the people close to him. I keep on saying that more anti doping tests have to be done outside competition. Punishment is not enough, people like Armstrong should give back first all all the won titles and then the money earned during his career.”
