London – Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray has said that Viktor Troicki and Marin Cilic’s unprofessional actions led to them being banned for doping offences.

According to the BBC, Murray believes there almost has to be zero tolerance so that players do not think they can get away with cheating, and so the sport can regain the public’s trust.

The British number one said that players needed to know the rules, and that there could be no excuses for accidentally taking a substance on the banned list.

Troicki, 27, who did not give a sample because he said he felt unwell, claimed the doping control officer told him he would be able to return the following day to take the test, something the officer denies, the report said.

He did give a blood sample 24 hours after the initial request and it showed no irregularities, the report added.

Cilic, 25, a former Australian Open semi-finalist, tested positive for banned supplement nikethamide in April, the report further said.

His ban was reduced from nine months to four months after an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) was partially upheld, allowing him to return to competition in October, according to the report.
