• Murray finding drug tests come all too often

    Murray finding drug tests come all too often Andy Murray has just undergone his third drug test since the French Open ended and wonders if perhaps he's becoming a soft target.

    The Scot is also bothered by the intrusive nature of the tennis testers who seem to take their pleasure in early-morning surprise visits.

    The world No. 4 player's more recent rude awakening came last Thursday morning, when he was jolted out of bed by the persistent ringing of his doorbell. "You have to give one hour every day where they can come. And because the last that you're ever thinking about when you wake up in the morning is that someone is going to come and drug test you.

    "You put it at 7:00 in the morning because I know I'm going to be in bed. It's just a bit annoying because it was my day off and I was looking for a lie in."

    Murray's mother Judy actually made the unwelcome visitors a cup of tea. "It's just very intrusive when you get someone in your house in the morning," said Murray. "When you're going to the toilet and they're staring at you, in your own home, it's just quite strange feeling."

    Murray, who won the last 15 games of his opening Wimbledon match over Spain's Daniel Gimeno-Traver, admitted that he and other players are never sure if the people ringing their front door bells at 7 am are legit or not.

    While the Scot suspects they likely are, there is always the nagging doubt. "It's not like we ever check, I don't really check whatever they're saying. The have a card, but you're not going to know if it's real or not, are you?"
