PRAGUE, November 13. /TASS/. No doping scandals are possible in Russian tennis, Shamil Tarpishchev, the president of the Russian Tennis Federation, told TASS on Friday.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Independent Commission delivered on Monday a report on its investigation into doping abuse allegations involving Russian athletes and recommended that the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) suspend all athletes of the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) from participation in international competitions. That can bar Russian athletes from competing in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
"The doping scandals such as in athletics are impossible in tennis," Tarpishchev said. "This is just ruled out, tennis is the purest sport. So nothing threatens our players’ participation in the 2016 Summer Olympics."
