Melbourne: Roger Federer said he was saddened by the Lance Armstrong drugs scandal, on Saturday, as players lined up to criticise the disgraced cyclist and Andy Murray backed tougher controls for tennis.
"What a sad story," said 17-time Grand Slam champion Federer, when asked about Armstrong at the Australian Open.
"Look, I mean, I don't know what to say. It just really saddens me to see that someone did this for such a long time. Obviously he's hurt his sport in a big way, even though he helped it in the beginning.
