Novak Djokovic has lit into disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong after his television confession to having doped during all seven of his Tour de France victories.
Asked about the scandal, Djokovic exploded: "They have like a thousand proofs that he's positive. I think it's a disgrace for the sport to have an athlete like this. He cheated the sport, he cheated many people around the world with his career, with his life story.
"I think they should take all his titles away because it's not fair towards any sportsman, any athlete. It's just not the way to be successful. So I think he should suffer for his lies all these years."
The Serb was apparently unaware that the action has already been taken by authorities in recent weeks when the decade-plus-old scandal resurfaced in a much more virulent form in its latest iteration.
The holder said that he had not been blood tested for half a year, but was still giving urine samples on a regular basis. "Anti-doping regulations a little bit maybe more strict (in tennis) in the sense that you have to fill the whereabouts documents and you have to basically give an hour or two in every day of your life in a whole year, where you are.
"On the other hand, it gives them an opportunity to test you. And you know it is the same for the other players. At least from that point of view, it's fair.
"I have nothing against the anti-doping federation, association, testing me 10, 20, 30 times a year."
