When it comes to professional athletes, especially the elite, it’s no surprise when they are required to submit to random drug testing. You know, to just make sure that they are, in fact, capable of performing as well as they do by their own efforts and without the help of performance enhancing drugs.
Just last week, former WTA #1, Serena Williams was the victim of random drug testing, however; instead of submitting some pee-pee, the tennis diva went into seclusion in her “safe room.” Apparently Williams thought the person who rung the doorbell and waiting patiently for a response, was a burglar or some type of bad person – rather skiddish I’d say.
My question is, why does Serena Williams have a safe room in her house to begin with? Does Serena really have that many people to fear that she needs to have a safe room in a house she probably spends only one month in a year? This whole scenario also begs the question, “Is Serena Williams on drugs?” It’s not like it’s something new that Williams has to go through, all pros have to do it and so does she. Was Serena dodging the drug test bullet intentionally? Only the WTA and Williams know the absolute truth.
Obviously, I’m not accusing Serena Williams of being a drug user at all! I’m just looking at the circumstances of this whole situation. Serena know she’s getting test at some point, drug tester goes to door, rings doorbell, waits, LAPD show up and question guy at door, claims he’s WTA drug tester, Williams hiding in closet, no urine was gathered for test. Sounds suspicious to me.
What do you all think? Is Serena Williams using performance enhancing drugs? Was it just coincidental that this played out the way it did? Was Serena intentionally trying to buy herself some “sobering” time? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
