Andy Murray says the Spanish court's decision to allow for the destruction of more than 200 blood bags in the Operation Puerto doping case is one big cover-up.

Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, at the heart of cycling's doping scandal, was found guilty Tuesday of endangering public health. His sentence was, to put it lightly, lenient. He was given a one-year suspended jail sentence, banned from practicing medicine and fined $6,000. With the case concluded, the judge ordered the blood bags obtained in the investigation be destroyed.

Tweeting for just the fourth time in 2013, Murray was highly critical of the court's decision.
