McEnroe and Chris Evert Should Be Held Accountable...

...for their reckless remarks.

During halftime of the Lakers and Nets basketball game tonight McEnroe and Evert said: " there has been talk that the matches between Venus and Serena have been predetermied". Other words, their matches have been fixed. If I were the commisioner of the WTA, I would challenge McEnroe, Evert, other media announcers or players to come forward with the proof and evidence of these charges. If they don't, I would take them to court for some civil action. It is scandalous to make these baseless charges and accusations and not be held accountable. It strikes at the very integrity of the game and can ruin the sport for many who enjoy it.

While the matches between Venus and Serena may not have been riveting and high quality tennis, there is no reason to throw out these wild accusations that their matches have been fixed.

Venus' and Serena's game depend on forcing the action and they are going to commit many errors. For example, Serena committed around 80 errors in her match against Capriati; yet there was no talk that this match was predetermined so that the sisters can make history at RG.

Oh well...that's my take and I'm sticking to it.

GO VENUS
GO SERENA

You are absoulutely correct.
The silence of the WTA is embarassing and their inaction is absolutely criminal.

Maybe that AO was fixed when Marti threw the match to Manners.

The envy, jealousy and bigotry aimed at these two ladies and their family is relentless.

Will have my sound on MUTE so I won't have to hear the CRAP from Evert and McEnroe. They don't have anyone to root for so they want to poo poo the match.

Choco exactly how can a regular tennis fan get in contact with the WTA commisioner? Or any Wta high rank official?

I would like to make a phone call and write a few letters.

Dawn, that's a very good point. I will look up the website and find phone numbers and post them so that those who are interested can make their voices be heard by the powers that be in the WTA.

When are these two not saynig something nasty about someone. Not Just the Williams sisters. They are both so awful, I mean they had great careers, it's over now get over it!!

I just ignore them. It makes me laugh knowing V & S screw them over all the time. And Gumby I totally agree last years Wimbledon, on mute till the trophy presentation LOL.

Thanks Choco, but we should not ignore this. I had enough. If alot of us get together and make a case then somebody will listen.

The year is 2002. I am tired of the racism from Chris and John. Choco post the #'s as soon as you can.

Rachel - I believe that I have as much right to a ridiculous opinion as McEnroe and Evert.

Who cares what they think.....I'm 100% sure Venus and Serena don't.

As I have said before....they are #1 and #2 in the world and playing for the Roland Garros title

That's the facts....and that's all that matters

Actually, what's more annoying is not that they would be presenting opinions, but that they are too cowardly to do so. Thus, they hide behind the "there has been talk....". You bring something like that up for one of two reasons, to support it or debunk it. If you're not picking it apart with facts to the contrary, then you're supporting it.

It's a common tactic. People hide behind the words of others. How many times have you read a magazine's "Letters to the Editor" column, and seen the replies heavily slanted one way or the other. They'll print letters that bring up points on one side of an issue, but never those with equally strong or stronger points for the other.

It's easy to hide behind anonymous "talk" or unidentified "other players" (an Andrea Leand specialty). That's the first warning sign.
