Former French Health and Sport Minister: ´Nadal? He stopped playing for 7 months in 2012 because was tested positive´

Roselyne Bachelot, former French minister of the health and sport, Interviewed by Grand8 program yesterday, spoke about doping in tennis. According to her, silent ban is a very widespread method. 'They do not reveal nor positive controls nor sanctions given in tennis, but curiously it becomes known that a men's or women's tennis player who gets injured stays far away of the courts for months' - Bachelot said.

Bachelot criticized very much Nadal: "We know that Rafael Nadal's famous injury, that stopped him for seven months, is certainly due to a positive drug test. When you see that a player stays away for months is because he is positive.

Not every time, but very often". In Indian Wells Nadal commented doping rumours about him saying that he is completely clean. 'No f***ing way, forget about it. I have never had the temptation of doing something wrong' - Nadal added.
