Washington: ATP players defended their sport and the tour's updating of anti-doping information on Wednesday in the wake of drugs cases involving 15th-ranked Croatia's Marin Cilic and Serbian Viktor Troicki.

"Tennis does a good job of testing from my experience," said 20th-ranked John Isner, the American number one. "Tennis as a whole, I do feel, our sport is clean."

The topic has drawn attention after Troicki was banned for 18 months after allegedly refusing to submit a blood sample to a tester and Cilic reportedly tested positive at an April event in Munich.
