Murray upset with late-night drug testing
Then he found out drug testers were looking for him.
“Just a bit annoyed … I know the players go on about it a lot, but they’ve changed these rules with the drug test,” Murray said. “I’ve just done the drug test, the urine test.”
But there was more _ a blood test.
“They just told me I need to sit down for 30 minutes before I can give blood,” Murray said. “I want to get out of here, so I’m annoyed with that, which on top of losing a match like that, it’s really a frustrating thing to have to go through at 1:00 in the morning.”
It’s not the first time Murray has criticized doping control officials.
At the 2009 U.S. Open, he complained when drug testers visited his Manhattan hotel room at 7:15 a.m. on a day off to test him.
He said at the same time that three days before Wimbledon that year, an anti-doping official came his house in Surrey near London after 9 p.m., even though he had put down 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. as his one-hour “slot” to be available to drug testers that day.
“I just think it’s a little bit in your face, the whole thing,” Murray said then.
It was 14-year-old ball boy Dylan Colaci.
Colaci reached out and made a one-handed, reflex catch that brought a roar from the crowd _ and instantly went viral on YouTube. The video had been viewed nearly 2 million times in the first 24 hours after the match.
“I didn’t have much time to think about it,” Colaci said. “I just stuck my hand out and the ball just stayed there. I couldn’t believe it myself but then I just had to get straight on with the match.
