Opelka reacts to Verdasco positive doping ban for forgetting to renew exemption: “Don't have empathy for player testing positive for adderall”

Reilly Opelka showed little sympathy for Fernando Verdasco while reacting to his suspension from tennis after a positive test.

Fernando Verdasco was suspended from tennis for two months after testing positive for a banned substance. The substance in question is part of his ADHD medicine for which he has an exemption but he forgot to renew it causing the suspension.

Opelka reacted to it showing very little sympathy and calling it legan doping:

"One of the biggest issues in tennis.. why are guys taking adderall for the first time in their life as adults? Legal doping."

He added:

"Sorry but I dont have empathy for any tennis player testing positive for adderall, as in my mind its a PED."
