Nadal: Then and Now

It's quite amazing how precise athletes get with language when they are caught out on the TUEs (see Wiggins, Bradley)

March 2016: "I have been open all my career...I never tried to hide nothing that I did. I did [platelet-rich plasma], and then I did stem cells. The first time with PRP, it worked fantastic, and the second time it was bad. I had to stop playing tennis for seven months....With stem cells, I used it two times on my knees and it worked very well. I am not doing, never did and never [am] going to do something wrong."

September 19, 2016: "If I have taken anything at any point during my career it was because I asked for and was given permission to do so; under that premise, it is not illegal...Never in my life have I taken anything to enhance my performance. It is simply that doctors granted permission for me to take a product to help my knee."
