Serena Williams has voiced her displeasure of being hounded by men of tennis’ anti-doping agency, Usada, to submit samples despite being out of tournament.

The multiple grand slam winner made this known through a series of messages on her social media page in the early hours of today, suggesting that she may be a target of Usada, labelling it the situation a “discrimination” towards her profile as a top tennis player.

“…and it’s that time of the day to get “randomly” drug tested and only test Serena. Out of all the players it’s been proven I’m the one getting tested the most. Discrimination? I think so. At least I’ll be keeping the sport clean,” the 36-year old wrote on her twitter page.

The mother-of-one, who recently return to the tennis tour at the Wimbledon Open in June where she lost the final to Germany’s Angelique Kerber, has been reportedly tested more than any other player on the tour. However, she stated that she is “ready” to cooperate in other to make the sport clean.

“But I’m ready to do whatever it takes to have a clean sport so bring it on. I’m excited,” she concluded.

Serena Williams, who is viewed as the best ever female tennis player, has won 23 grand slam titles and will hope to add to her tally in the upcoming US Open championship.
