Davenport fires back at Gimbelstob

Gimelstob, Davenport exchange words


South Florida Sun-Sentinel
NEW YORK -- New York awakened to rain and Justin Gimelstob awakened to his blog on the Sports Illustrated Web site, in which he took a few potshots at the women's tennis tour.

"As dysfunctional as the men's tour is, the women's tour blows it away," wrote Gimelstob, who spent three days at Wimbledon amusing reporters with his opinions. "For example, it's impossible for there to be enough practice courts for men and women to share without some kind of bickering.

"It's insane. They literally would prefer to hit four on a court with their coach than two on a court with another player. They live in Bizarro World. However, one of the benefits of having the women around is the ever-increasing desire for each and every young sassy player trying to outdo or in this case, under-dress the next.

"My prediction: Pretty soon the WTA practice courts and maybe even the match courts will resemble a women's volleyball court, with bikinis being the only logical next step.

". . . But I'd like to recommend to players both female and male . . . if you resemble a beached whale, keep your gear on."

It wasn't long before at least one woman, world No. 1 Lindsay Davenport, was taking a bit of a rip back at Gimelstob.

"I'm always curious what the fascination is about men having to judge women constantly. What they look like. What they wear. Who they hang out with.

". . . And men have this endless fascination with, and Justin especially, about just picking on everything about the body. And so his column was, I thought, a waste of time."

Lindsay always manages to sound eloquent, articulate and yet strangely opinionated in a subtle way. She's awesome

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige ŕ répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brűlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.
