Re: Ion Tiriac to file a millionaire lawsuit against WTA

First inviting Nastase to the trophy ceremony, now this... he's kind of a jerk, isn't he?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Google Translate seems to do a much better job on Spanish -> English than (say) German -> English:

Ion Tiriac declares war on WTA

Accuses the women's association of generating large losses at the Mutua Madrid Open

The organizer of the Mutua Madrid Open tennis tournament is currently claiming a millionaire claim against the International Women's Tennis Association (WTA), which it accuses of causing a millionaire damage.

According to what THE WORLD has learned, Madrid Trophy Promotion, organizer of the tournament, will claim in court the heavy damages that it considers to be suffering for years as a result of the WTA action in relation to the Madrid tournament. The claim has already been entrusted to the benchmark firm of former tennis player Ion Tiriac in Spain, Business & Law.

The core of the demand is that the company commanded by Tiriac believes that the attitude and performance of WTA have been damaging the commercial profitability of the Mutua Madrid Open and counterposes for this the performance of the women's association in other tournaments organized by ATP.

The Tiriac society will argue that it can not be explained how the tournament suffers economic losses in its women's table despite the boom of the same in the last years with figures like Garbiñe Muguruza, Serena Williams or Maria Sharapova . In this sense, the claim will maintain that WTA ignores their contractual commitments or applies them in a way favorable to their interests, causing the economic damages to fall exclusively on the organizers of the tournament.

He will also add that the programming of the different international tournaments of WTA has adversely affected the organization of the Madrid Open. As an example, this year the tournament was forced to adjust its schedule to include players who were playing other international tournaments.

Following this line the company of Tiriac also reprimand that the lack of diligence of WTA in its management has caused the descent of the televising hearings, at international as national level, of the feminine tournaments, automatically diminishing the sponsorships. Finally, he will ask for an investigation of the company and contractual framework devised by WTA to violate the legal regulations that protect tournament organizers.

The judicial battle of Ion Tiriac with the international women's association takes place in full height of the Madrid tournament. Not in vain, the XVI edition, held last May, pulverized all the records of assistance recorded so far.

Thus, Mutua Madrid Open 2017 welcomed 260,228 spectators: 15,568 more than the previous year's edition and 38,000 more than the one celebrated in 2015. Another proof of its success was that the final between Rafa Nadal and Dominic Thiem was the tennis match most seen in TVE since May 2013. The public channel recorded a share of screen of 20.7% which resulted in 2,568,000 viewers who saw the triumph of the manacorense.

About the lawsuit, everyone is entitled to take legal actions against another. Right or wrong, that remains to be seen

Ion has always hated women's tennis, he has always been mean and money obsessed. This case just proves the point.

Re: Ion Tiriac to file a millionaire lawsuit against WTA

I read the article and I still don't get what exactly is he claiming against WTA. That the crowd don't care enough about women matches? And that is WTA fault because?
Strange lawsuit. I get WTA can do more to promote its circuit but to the point of being blamed for the economic failure of a tournament seems a lot of reaching by Mr. Tiriac.

A more titillating litigation would have been if he had sued ATP for Nadal's blue clay veto or sued WTA for Sharap's post ban WCs (which ensured that his compatriot Halep will not get to №1)

A lawsuit for spite. Bff Ilie told him to give WTA a headache for a laugh.

Simona, actually, has like 5 different winning strategies...
Maybe the God sent Ostapenko into the final in order to engrave the new Simona into stone!

Expected. I said it at the time, that dumb WTA chief has no idea who he's messing with. You just don't anger this type of people if you know what's good for you.

How so "expected"?

That issue was in fed cup (it's ITF that banned Nastase, not WTA)

The question what whether he is a jerk or not, not what his legal rights are.

They are two separate questions.

The WTA clown took it upon himself to publicly criticise Tiriac for inviting Nastase to the trophy ceremony. He got really pissed about that and demanded an apology, which I don't think happened. Hence Tiriac is just getting back at him with this.
