Indian Wells CEO......a**hole.....

No, I think the WTA you know, in my next life when I come back I want to be someone in the WTA, (Laughter because they ride on the coattails of the men. They dont make any decisions and they are lucky. They are very, very lucky.

If I was a lady player, Id go own every night on my knees and thank god that Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal were born, because they have carried this sport. They really have.

Who the hell IS this idiot think he is???

1. Serena had a good comeback

"Obviously I don't think any woman should be down on their knees thanking anybody like that.

"If I could tell you every day how many people say they don't watch tennis unless they're watching myself or my sister, I couldn't even bring up a number. So I don't think that is a very accurate statement.

"I think there is a lot of women out there who are more exciting to watch. I think there are a lot of men out there who are exciting to watch. I think it definitely goes both ways. I think those remarks are very much mistaken and very, very, very inaccurate. [...]

"We, as women, have come a long way. We shouldn't have to drop to our knees at any point. [...]

"In order to make a comment [like that] you have to have history and you have to have facts and you have to knows things. I mean, you look at someone like Billie Jean King who opened so many doors for not only women's players but women's athletes in general."

I feel like that is such a disservice to her and every female, not only a female athlete but every woman on this planet that has ever tried to stand up for what they believed in and being proud to be a woman.



Good one Serena

3. I'm one

I love watching Serena.

I saw a poster of her today in our local library. She was advocating reading.

Serena is a hero.

6. Methinks Serena should not have ended her boycott of Indian Wells.

Fuck that place and fuck those people - they don't deserve to have her presence.

7. Just saw in LBN that he has resigned

Glad to see other former Female Tennis stars talking out about this.

But seriously - Djokovich is an ass, too.
