  1. Thank God it wasn’t just me who thought that Roger’s acanpraepe at the players’ party in Dubai was, as you put it, a get out of jail free card.The kind of selective amnesia shown by the tennis press is mind boggling, but I almost expect it now.It’s not always as obvious as it is in this case, but would be very much in evidence if for example, Venus took a public position against the dubious injury timeouts so rampant on the WTA Tour. Very soon you’d see articles appearing to side with her, but with ever so gentle a hint of a suggestion that to do so so publicly wasn’t perhaps in the best of taste.Very different when Roger does the same with respect to Djokos pullouts (not that I’m a fan of that either), no?


  2. great piece!!!

    “they’ll see an ant playing tennis” HaHa- Ashe is the worst tennis venue in the game-tennis is difficult to follow w/binoculars+you would need them to see that the winner’s check is for 1.8 m(US)

    As for the outrageous prices, i agree; but, i’m scottish and “Scots are tighter than bark to the tree”- I thought it was too expensive 10 yrs ago…

    someone had to say it, thanks Steve!
