'An anti-doping test carried out in 2006 revealed abnormally high levels of testosterone in Dutch tennis player Robin Haase, press reports in the Netherlands revealed on Friday.My one comment is that the headline writer gets it wrong, what occurred would be classified as an Atypical Finding based on a testosterone to epitestosterone ratio (T/E ratio) screening. This is in contrast to, for example, the IRMS test that found baseball player Ryan Braun had synthetic (exogenous) testostorone in his system.
'Haase, 26, explained in the daily Volkskrant that, after undergoing the test, he received a letter from the ATP advising him "to get a lawyer" and indicating that he would have to undergo three more tests in the following two weeks.
'However, according to Haase, the letter also indicated that "the abnormal level could very well be natural"'
The original Haase stories (in Dutch) are here and here.
