Serena Williams accused tennis doping authorities of 'discrimination' after she faced a random drugs test.

The 36-year-old, who has enjoyed a remarkable tennis 'momback' since the birth of Alexis Olympia, 10 months ago, raged on social media that it had been proven that she is tested more than other players by US Anti Doping.

Serena, who reached the final of Wimbledon two weeks ago, said the only consolation from the regular testing was that she was 'helping to keep the sport clean.' 
The star, who is married to multi-millionaire tech mogul Alexis Ohanian, wrote: '...and it’s that time of the day to get "randomly" drug tested and only test Serena.

'Out of all the players it’s been proven I’m the one getting tested the most. Discrimination? I think so. At least I’ll be keeping the sport clean #StayPositive'

Around the same time as the tweet, the mother-of-one had been posting about the bliss of putting her baby girl to sleep, saying:  'I can’t seem to put her in bed I’m loving holding her in my arms. I want to milk every second!'
Earlier this month, Williams told reporters at Wimbledon she does not care how often she is drug tested as long as other players are treated in the same way.

The seven-time champion reiterated her claim that she undergoes more checks for doping than anyone else on the circuit.

The 36-year-old American went on the front foot when asked about a recent story that an official from US Anti Doping left her house empty-handed after a visit on June 14.
