POINTING FINGERS: In London, Mike Dickson writes the "attempts of tennis to clamp down on doping were mired in confusion and recrimination" yesterday after tennis player Marin Cilic "emerged from his shortened ban for testing positive." Cilic appeared at the BNP Paribas Masters in his first match since Wimbledon, and afterwards "insisted that the sport’s anti-doping authorities had mistakenly overestimated the amount of Nikethamide found in his body when he failed a test back in May." Tennis player Jo Wilfried Tsonga earlier "articulated a general level of exasperation with the system when he declared that 'everybody is lying'" on the issue. Tsonga said, "Those who are testing us I feel are not always saying the truth, so with all these things we don't even know where the truth lies" (London DAILY MAIL, 10/29).
