The ITF announced today, that, effective 1 January 2006, Dr. Stuart Miller, currently Technical Manager, is being promoted
to Head of the newly created Science & Technical Department that takes over the management responsibility for the
ITF’s Anti-Doping Programme. Miller, a Ph.D. from Manchester Metropolitan University, has worked for the ITF since
ITF President Francesco Ricci Bitti said: “This decision was made in part because of the increased activity that will arise
due to the agreement made by the ITF in October with the ATP to take over management of drug-testing at ATPsanctioned
events from the start of 2006. When we considered how best to structure the Anti-Doping Department, we
felt that Stuart’s scientific and academic background made him the ideal choice. During his tenure, we have noted his
achievements that have helped to make the ITF Technical Department and Laboratory the gold standard in this area. He
has also contributed through his work with the ITF Technical Commission and Sport Science & Medicine Commission.
We expect Stuart’s leadership to help us greatly in the fight against doping in tennis.”
Jonathan Harris, currently Administrator of the ITF Anti-Doping Programme, will continue to play a key role in the
Department and will also fulfil his other legal and constitutional responsibilities.
Ricci Bitti continued: “Jonathan’s expertise and experience in anti-doping is an invaluable asset to the ITF. Stuart and
Jonathan will make an outstanding team as we expand our role in the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme to include the ATP-sanctioned
Jamie Capel-Davies will be promoted to Coordinator in the newly created position of Senior Project Technologist and
will take day-to-day responsibility for many of the Technical Centre’s activities, reporting directly to Stuart Miller.
