The unequal prize money and the snobbery.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

Well, i have thought about the one with the lights many times, and i don't really know what to think.

I can't imagine a night match at Wimbledon, but i guess it's all to do with keeping the "traditions".

But I voted for the rain and roof, obviously.

Women's tennis sucks.

I don't know about the rain. It's everywhere and Wimbledon isn't the only tournament without the roof. I don't know about the lights too. Rolandd Rtaggos doesn't have them.

I hate the HYPE.

Tsss, I forgot to vote for the rain... Gaaah...

I voted for the lack of equal prize money and the no play on Sunday.

So long, signature...
